We are looking for something primitive: a memory from before our birth. Something obvious, we all carry and that evolves within us: the first gestures of the first men. Between art, science and technology, our research tends to a virtual scene of rock art in action. Assuming that the cave paintings are the traces of oral performance or dance rites, they have been used as transmission and communication media for the knowledge of surrounding and environments of the early men (hunting, myth, history, art or religious content, shamanism). Through the scope of these fragmentary traces of history, we are seeking to reconstruct various performative scenarios echoing the paintings of the Chauvet’s cave.

The Creative process of this performance is truly collaborative. The idea is to make ideas converging and scenes emerging live on stage. To do so, we elaborate working days connecting all the performers (actors, dancers, director, sound, visual and light designers) together during yoga sessions, jam improvisation sessions and rehearsals. We also open the our creative jam session to the public and inviting him to engage and to participate.
