A discovery at the Avignon Festival in Protected content , Julien Gosselin and most of his “band” of actors are from the same year Protected content EPSAD, the school of dramatic art at the "Théâtre du Nord" (Lille).

Following in the footsteps of Stuart Seide and Antoine Vitez, as can be seen recently with Roberto Bolaño’s Protected content , Julien Gosselin likes to adopt narrative theatre techniques to realise ensemblestyle adaptations of challenging, ambitiously long novels which are to all appearances unstageable.

His gamble has paid off with this saga by Michel Houellebecq: set against the backdrop of the second half of the 20th century comes the story of two half-brothers brought together and forced apart by everything: the legacy of Protected content , rock and pop culture, their relationship to knowledge, the way they approach sex, love and women.

Two tragic fates torn between sordid swinging clubs and scientific Irish laboratories that specialise in cloning, between somewhat cheap literary sociology and a science-fiction story which is both strange and disturbing.

NOTE: duration 3h50 (with intermission)
