Who hasn’t dreamed of going back in time to change the course of events and alter the outcome? Here, the story begins at the end. We enter a city devastated and shattered by a cataclysm, the exact nature of which is unknown. Furniture, objects and bodies are floating in space. Time seems to be suspended. Then life slowly resumes and the story unfolds in reverse, going back in time to the moment before the catastrophe.

Jusqu’à ce qu’on meure is a euphoric sensory experience, an immersive and ambulatory event whose various scenographic installations are scattered throughout the room where seats have been removed. The public can circulate freely, lingering where they wish, discovering the work at their own pace and according to their desires. There is no predetermined route: you can watch the same scene several times, go through the whole set or follow any of the characters.

Twelve fabulous performers from seven different cultures and of various ages—coming from circus, theatre and dance backgrounds—form a flamboyant, vibrant and energetic cast, to which is added a live DJ who offers an explosive finale, a great party of which we are all part of. We are invited to dance… “until we die”!
