Magical images, music from time immemorial and free-floating dance. However filled with nightmares, the nights of Marcia Barcellos and Karl Biscuit are more beautiful than our days. Bordering on unreality, here is an invitation to a dream.

Magic experts Marcia Barcellos and Karl Biscuit explore dreams and their interpretation. But this is no treatise on Freudism. Instead, the magical duo Système Castafiore proposes a wakeful journey into the mesmerizing world of illusion. Drawing upon Water and Dreams, an essay by philosopher Gaston Bachelard, the two partners in crime seek out the “images hiding at the root of imagining power” . At the intersection of film and theater techniques, their sequence of sketches unfolds in a staging that combines music, lights and videos, deftly blurring the line between dream and reality. Five dancers wearing flamboyant costumes are subject to all the hallucinations of REM sleep and experience the strange consoling power of nightmares. “Until the light of waking comes. Unless the creatures of the night have engulfed this poor reality that never existed.” Isabelle Calabre
