In partnership with the Coalition Climat 21, Gilles Martin stages NO(S) FUTURS, with 9 players from 16 to 22 years old and 40 videotaped testimonies of young people from the region of Ile-de-France. A theatrical and hybrid matter to question the will of the youth to act on the world.

NO(S) FUTURS* proposes a piece of theater interpreted by a dozen of amateur theater teenagers and which includes videotaped testimonies of about 40 young people interviewed in several cities in the region of Ile-de-France about their will to act on the world.

On the stage, the teenagers embody a crew of stewards boarded a flight without pilot and going at a maximum speed to the unknown. This score plays with humor and irony with the blindness of the society which refuses to see the impasse to where its way of living is leading it. Echoing this point in an editing of several video sequences which comes to mix with the fable, young people from 15 to 25 years old testify to their worries, their yearnings and their will to act on the world.

The teenagers take a central place in the project. They are invited to take part on the stage and through the documentary, in an active, imaginative and intimate way. To take ownership of their destiny ?

As an artistic, participative and multidisciplinary project, NO(S) FUTURS opens the questions to subjects which are in the center of the reflection about social and political ecology and proposes a in-the-reality rooted theater which carries out a concrete work to strengthen the link between the artist, the citizen and politics.

*NO(S) FUTURS of Gilles Martin is published to the Editions Agapantes & Cie, 2014, collection Ados en scène n°2.
