LA PAC / VERY CONTENT

A thick fog dissipates over a stadium. Within it, a young charismatic woman. She looks like she escaped from somewhere to get here. Through a gestural routine inspired by the world of manga (half dance, half incantation), she invokes a drones pack that gathers around her. Perfectly synchronized with his gestures, they offer a show of symbiosis between humans, machines, and nature. Half magical, half threatening. The second scene presents the young woman as a leader who guides drones through an empty field full of waste. They invest the streets with panache and enthusiasm, a sign of a disturbing burst of vitality. There is not really a story, but rather a very simple process. The idea is essentially to show a dynamic of cohabitation between nature, humans and machines. Without taking a position, we let perceive how this dynamic is both beautiful and magical and at the same time quite worrying.
