EMOTION allows you to discover the poetic world of a little girl with an overflowing imagination. Enter her laboratory garden, populated by strange, surprising and funny animals: new species that are half-animal, half-plant. As you explore visions of the world ranging from the infinitely small to the infinitely large, you’ll be accompanying this little girl who has just lost her mum and helping her to reconnect with her emotions. Interact with the immersive set and four 3D puppets. Throughout the experience, you’ll be guided on your journey by small emotional particles that will create beautiful visual and audio alchemies around you. Take part in live sessions, during which actors and performers equipped with motion capture suits will accompany you throughout the experience.
