Men on the brink of tumbling, men on the boundary between, on one hand, darkness, fear and the unknown, and, on the other, light, hope and safety.
The primary theme of the project is the fragility of existence, instability, loss of balance and the unpredictability of life: moments when our normality is suddenly overturned or, in moments of adversity, in a slow and insidious fall.

Our intention is to create a series of tableaux vivants (living pictures) that will allow the audience to lose their points of reference, that will set them adrift and blur their judgement of positive and negative. Is it better to hold on or to let go?
