L’ECUME DES JOURS is a 3D augmented live show that won the SACD Multi-screen Writing Prize, the Baia Mare Special Jury Prize and the Europe Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Prize.

Colin is an affluent young man who loves jazz and love and hates violence and work. Full of love, he lives in a world he imagines, in which his strong emotions overturn the laws of physics. A thousand omens accumulate and lead Colin to Chloé. He finds true love. But Chloé falls ill. Soon, the windows refuse to let in any light, Colin’s radiant universe shrinks, and his bedroom becomes a swampy, oozing sphere…

An unusual adaptation of Boris Vian’s famous novel, for a live actor moving through twenty visual, sound and digital tableaux. The artisitc concept is to bring Colin’s subjective vision to life, and to show how his world is altered by his emotions through the use of digital shaders. Colin relives his story in a loop, immersed in a parallelepiped of mirrors and screens. The set design is imagined as an interactive stage, a digital medium for Vian’s surreal poetry.
