Who hasn’t ever dreamed of leaving their life behind, hitting the reset button, and starting over? In Ce qu’on attend de moi, this is the journey you are invited to take part in. Every night, a volunteer from the audience becomes an actor in the play and gets immersed in a surprising stage environment. The audience, gathered under an open-air canopy, experiences a unique artistic performance infused with a subtle, poetic quality.
A hybrid work that is purely neither theatre nor film, Ce qu’on attend de moi explores the universal character of feelings, and leads us on an encounter with the Other. An original experience that pays tribute to the beauty and diversity of human emotions.
