Alternating between narrative, drama, chronology and cantata, Collapsed dances on a thread. How can we envisage the preservation of the Earth system in the face of predicted crises? Is the collapse the ultimate pirouette of a humanity, both clown and acrobat, suspended on the thread of History? With humor, with the tonic energy generated by the attraction of the void, three actors highlight the paradoxes that have led the Earth system as we know it to its collapse. In their quest, they are accompanied by a musician who gives voice to what is beyond the scope of human thought: what plants tell, what animals dream, what stones console.

The show Effondré.e.s was conceived as an extension of the residency of Julien Avril's company Enascor at the Scène de recherche, with the support of the Mechanical Engineering Department of ENS Paris-Saclay. This creation gave rise to a collective Interdisciplinary Project with the students of ENS Paris-Saclay.
