with Guillaume Tremblay , Emilie Sigouin & Hamidou Savadogo

Language: French

An open-ended exploration of the energies and rituals of various workplaces. From one worker to another and one machine to the next; hands, faces, breaks, toil: what kind of absurdist, abstract dialogue can be started between human beings and their need to work? What is the value of the time we spend multiplying and repeating the same motions that ultimately lead to a rest and state of repose whose quality defies definition.
