La Chapelle Scene contemporaine presents: Youngnesse.

Youngnesse is a reflection on the political energy of youth.Dance, theatre, music, performance and visual art come together in a series of tableaux about a generation galvanized by the transformative potential of collective action. What kind of future can we imagine, realistically? When we cannot decide whether to shout, protest, withdraw, or escape, the only defense mechanism left is the energy we have. Live on stage with projets hybris, you’ll see the band DRY SEC, newly formed by members of VICTIME and Technical Kidman.
