Le Poids des nuages

Inspired by the universe of Jules Verne, it is an exploration of the intangible, of memory and of time.
A man falls during an ascent. He has gone through something and wakes up elsewhere, as if by himself.

A passage has opened in his memory and his memories are gradually escaping him.

While trying to catch up with them, he realizes that this passage did not only take things …
He realizes that he is not alone in this timeless crossroads.

Two characters share an epic in the maze of a memory that reinvents itself.
Aboard this ship of possibilities, they seek to build their exit door.

In this project, Damien Droin wishes to explore 2 axes:

Our relationship to memories and memory. I want to go find the sensations that the discovery of memories that no longer belong to us can bring.
I started to suggest to authors to write these memories of lost lives, which will give a dramaturgical framework to acrobatic writing.

The other. Starting from a character attracted by the void, who seeks contact, who falls and goes up again. Until a door opens into the void. He went to the other side. He is below and the other is above.

In a dreamlike space, two individuals weave amazing relationships between them and find themselves caught up in the movements of a tormented memory. Two acrobats transport us, questioning us about collective memory, the difficulty of anchoring, the loss of bearings and the questioning of reality.
