Twelve blind people form a circle around a dead body: that of the priest responsible for taking them to the hospice. Adapted from Maurice Maeterlinck's text, this piece of collective immersive theater questions our perception of existence and the world.

For 12 participants simultaneously. 

Due to the specificity of the experience, the session must start on time. Please arrive at the venue 10 minutes before the time indicated on your ticket.


Twelve spectators, twelve blind people. Abandoned in a freezing world, where only the disembodied echo of a forest in agony remains, by the priest whose job it was to take them to the hospice. The same priest who lies dead at their feet. Who are we? And who are they? Adapted from Maurice Maeterlinck's text of the same name, this piece of collective immersive theater questions our perception of the links we maintain with our world, through our own eyes and through the contemporary filter of virtual reality. A subtle treatment of space, light and sound results in a profound and captivating experience not to be missed.
