Eight dancers of diverse origins make their way through an immersive, interactive environment that evokes a connected humanity, where multiple possibilities coexist: genetic mutations, cohabitation of human and artificial intelligences, dreams of immortality, digital survival….

From the basement to the nave, the altar and the choir, Cirque Alfonse’s dwellers of the past enter this symbolic space, giving it a revamp.
