Les Somnambules is a voyage into a city in transition. An old neighbourhood destined for demolition makes room for a dehumanized modern city. During the night, when the city sleeps, its inhabitants dream. Their dreams echo throughout the city, animating and transforming it into a place where anything is possible.
With irony, Les Somnambules conjures these contemporary transformations and sketches the outline of a city whose contours are redesigned by its inhabitants.
This story is told through a spectacular scale model of the city brought to life by shadows and lights, with four puppeteers and two musicians leading the audience into a swell of imagination.
