Migrating to more agreeable planets

&&&&& & &&&& is about science and fiction and the link between them. It is both a performance and an exhibition. It shows how to solve astrophysical problems by dancing and travels through the atmosphere in a Renault Express.

The audience is free to wander around on stage amongst about ten installations. You can enter the performance at any moment; in the course of the four-hour presentation the half-hour performance is repeated like a loop.

&&&&& & &&&& is about the future that is already in our lives today, about the possibility of finding intergalactic phenomena in a cardboard box, and about migrating to more agreeable planets. The performance is serious, New-Agey and slightly crazy all at the same time: it could have been made by a nine-year-old Bill Gates for his mum’s birthday.
