How can we occupy a less aggressive position amidst other organisms, living systems, ecosystems and objects? Three performers tackle that question by performing the intrinsic frenzy of being human. To do so, they revert to an ancient, almost extinct, tradition of clowning.

Using the nonsensical language and shaky body of the clown, with gleeful recklessness and frivolous pretense, the performers make their way through human history and beyond. Along the way, they tap into a number of natural fantasies within which Western man forms a self-image, from the idyllic pastoral to the defeatist climate catastrophe.
