“A single audience member will be inserted into a scenario halfway between a nostalgic connection to their own life and a connection to a dream life, the one they would like to have.” Philippe Cyr

Score for solo audience member

Every evening, one audience member is selected to be the show’s central figure. A performance for non-actors, a human experiment about free will and collective conditioning, a hybrid work that enlists the codes of documentary and cinéma vérité.

As part of their ongoing reflection on absence and escape, Philippe Cyr and Gilles Poulin-Denis propose an extraordinary theatrical and social experience. An audience member chosen at random becomes the centre of a stage device that explores the workings of the imagination and the nature of humanity. The result of the two artists’ long creative process, inspired by the work of neurobiologist Henri Laborit, is a touching show with carefully crafted visual and musical elements—and of course every performance is unique.
