What if you had to conjure everything that ever existed and you only had an hour to do it? Nature took a few billion years to get it right, and even the Biblical God had a full working week.

From light to thought to the laws of physics, four intrepid performers step into the void and build the universe from scratch in a work whose scope couldn’t be wider. Absurd, inventive and driven by a mischievous sense of play, this is theatre that tears up its own foundations to get to the bottom of existence.

With detours through virtual worlds, human consciousness and art itself, Halory Goerger and Antoine Defoort from French cooperative l’amicale de production present a deft-footed performance which always dances one step ahead of expectations, leading us on a high-spirited chase across the eons.

A whole lot of fun and deeply affecting
