Climate change is on the agenda. What storms are preparing above us, and within us ?
What makes the glaciers rumble if not global warming? Why are world leaders going to meet in Paris? It’s for this reason that David Lescot has created the character of a writer asked by a newspaper to give his point of view of the situation. He doesn’t know anything about it so he decides to understand as much as possible.
David Lescot has created a “theatre inquiry” in the style of an intimate documentary, driven by his curiosity, his laser insight, and his humour, all of which are a part of him. But he also probes our sensibilities, our emotions, our lives, to atmospheric phenomena. Because of this, the piece is surrounded by raging elements – actors, dancers, musicians, and acrobats, all ready to create lightning and an art of catastrophes, rainfall and clear spells.
