Le monde is a scenic answer to the question that occupies, at its core, all science and philosophy; how to categorize things and beings? How to name them? How to distinguish them? And above all, how to do it well? We know that naming something, someone, is already assigning them an identity, rights, duties, it is simply defining a horizon of expectation of what this entity can or cannot do. And it can be quite painful. However, we cannot escape it, we must call one thing one thing.
Using the most advanced techniques of the theatrical technology, as well as the latest advances in spiritual and scientific research, Old Masters offers a collective experience of emancipation and reappropriation of codes to create a new world together.
