The creators of Système Castafiore will be accompanied by a memorable visual and emotional experience through its magical plastic universe with Théorie des prodiges. The project concept is to look the world through amazed eyes again. But, without magic, everything is reduced to mathematics. “Magic has been replaced by image: this double inversion ended up with taking the imagination out from us.”, this is what said Barcellos and Biscuit. The show is a series of moments that tries to restore the order of reality. The stage turns itself into a place of wonder. "Théorie des Prodiges" is above all a show of gnostic dance. It is a search for the essence manifestation, the return of the primordial source. It sneaks in the microsystem and makes it echo the immensely great.
