Balance ?

I’m throwing you off, you’re throwing me off, we’re throwing each other off… On what scale?

The game of tensions, the polarities, continue to manifest themselves in the world of humans.

Zoonosis, pollution and the weakened biodiversity make us pay for our naivety in believing in the myth of inexhaustible resources.

Through covid, through fires, through floods…

This new school year finds us divided. We need, more than ever, to connect to each other.

To be sensitive and supportive, to discern with benevolence and to claim better worlds in the face of the neoliberal dystopias that fall upon us.

Let’s put everything back on the scale.

Let’s stop throwing stones at each other.

Let’s dream, still standing, of new utopias.

After a productive summer, with Metanymphes and Judith in Greece, the 2020 creation OMNI-NIHILUM will be presented in Tours! You will finally be able to discover it on October 2 and 3, after 3 cancellations due to the health crisis and there will be no question of talking about nihilism! We will just talk about…polarities. Omni: Everything, and Nihilum: Nothing. If we believe Heraclitus*, the current discordance in our societies will bring us a new harmony. Amen ?!

This is the last part of Newtopia 8 to be presented in 2021, although Ecstatic Body (Newtopia 9) sessions have already started since January 1st!

Beware! The capacity is limited and the venue is subject to the health pass requirement. Infos and reservations : helloasso.com/omni-nihilum


[*Opposition brings concord. Out of discord comes the fairest harmony.“]
