What will we talk about on December 6?

Imagine a world devoid of sound. How will it develop, and how will its inhabitants interact with each other?

Imagine a world in which you have no protection: there are no laws, no proprieties and no social contract—a world where you can come under attack or be insulted at any moment. What will you do to defend yourself?

Imagine a world devoid of everything you are used to, of everything that has become part of you: family, home, work and friends. How will it feel to live in such a world?

The task is to experience, not to watch, and to feel, not to realize… 8 hours. A 360 degree perspective. 100% immersion.
