For the Paris Climate Change Conference 2015, the editor-in-chief of a leading newspaper commissions a journalist to write an article on climate change. In the middle of a romantic break-up, the writer embarks on a veritable investigation. David Lescot's play is structured as a documentary, connected to the outcome of the COP21. Will the world take action for the first time?

Théo Touvet, at the core of this creation, had done climate change studies for NASA before becoming a performer.

David Lescot builds layers by interweaving his play with Shakespeare's A Winter's Tale, placing it in context with our topic of interest. His “modern-day baroque theatre" recreates natural phenomena using rain, wind and snow machines. Altering terrestrial revolution, changing the composition of the atmosphere, and even repainting mountains are not off-limit...

The Climate Change Conference 2015 moves from the world stage to a theatre stage in an unprecedented study of humanity and climate change.
