From July 4 to 7, the Labo des Désirs celebrates “L’été insolite” (Unusual Summer). Clear your mind and fill it up again over your vacation (vacuum). Slow down your body, among climate change and an unusual rave party in a forest filled with texts…

Tuesday 4/07 – An emotional start to the week focused on the climate emergency.
10 a.m. – 12 p.m.: “Hot or cold” breakfast hosted by La Réplique and warm-up aikishintaïso and theatrical contingencies led by Cécile Peyrot and Yohan Le Corre.

5:15pm – 5:45pm: excerpt from the show « Rencontres intimes avec l’anthropocène » – ( Intimate encounters with the Anthropocene ). Based on the reports of CNRS researchers from Labos1point5, it’s time to speak about climate with emotions – a first for researchers, who are usually bound by scientific discipline. The goal? To explore different ways of talking about ecology and open up the possibilities for action.
