Séance FACE À L’AMER

En ce jour vénusien, vous allez vous délecter de la grâce matinée de fantaisie(s) de cette première séance.

Nous vous savons explorateurs curieux, ennemis jurés du rationnel, anthropologues des sciences surnaturelles et gourmands invétérés. Décidément, ce programme n’attendait que vous (et inversement).

Un équilibre qui pourrait apparaître dangereux de prime abord… et qui se confirme.
