Gilles Clément, landscape gardener, theorized his concept of “the garden in motion”. What happens when humans act as little as possible “against” nature? The wasteland becomes a forest where biodiversity regains its rights.

Alexandra Grimal has created a spatialized score where a game of cards represents the plants. Emerging sound ecosystems rewild the musicians and the public.

Depending on the weather, by the pond or in the succulent house.
