An explorer of places and relationships, Frédéric Ferrer will dress up as the master of ceremony to unveil the secrets of the Sujets à vif: what is under that stage? What is really at play in the Jardin de la Vierge? Based on encounters and inventiveness, the mythical “Sujets” couldn't celebrate their twentieth birthday without a few guests and without imagining for themselves a new destiny, and maybe a major one, within the Festival.


Frédéric Ferrer
Since 1994, Frédéric Ferrer, actor, director, and writer, has explored onstage the theories and scientific experiments revolving around the climate, madness, and the Anthropocene, mapping with his shows of absurd geography the relationship between Man and space in general, spaces in particular, and thus to himself.
