Immerse yourself in the limbo imagined and created out of thin air by the artists' collective consisting of musicians and composers Marie Delprat and Stanislas Pili, stage designer Thomas Giger and sound engineer Maxime Le Saux.

The collective around Marie Delprat takes up the challenge of addressing the question of the unrepresentable: The representation of an imaginary space, a mythical and unreal place.

With the help of a special device, an immersive sound installation, the collective creates a scenic space that fully involves the spectators. Immersion in this powerful universe allows them to experience the very spatiality and materialisation of sound.

The work of the collective is based on the stage, its place understood as heterotopia, a concept initiated by Foucault and later developed by numerous contemporary philosophers. The installation is based on concrete materials to create a space, to occupy it by giving it values and interpretations that allow it to exist differently.

In fact, it is about constructing and making tangible this imaginary place that exists only in its religious or figurative sense. In Dante’s Divine Comedy, limbo is an indeterminate place where souls who have not sinned but cannot enter paradise because they have not been baptised persevere. More generally, it means an uncertain, undecided state.

From this mythical, unreal place, the collective harness all the metaphorical and interpretative power contained in the word and its connotations. This place of limbo, detached from any ordinary temporality and spatiality, nevertheless becomes, thanks to the installation, a space where sounds and images offer the viewer all possibilities.
