PLAY : AEQUALIS BY GONZALO VILCHES-CABRERA

Wednesday, May 25th from 5:30 pm

La brasserie La Korrigane

Energy forges the universe, the world, the human being … but in what way? AEQUALIS is a theatrical artistic work that uncovers the gears of the contemporary world in its corrosive relations of power, illustrated by exploitation and consumption. AEQUALIS presents and ensures, from the theatrical representation, the valorization of fair trade where one tries to reconcile the economic, social and ethical forces based on the respect of the Earth and its links. In this dramatic, dynamic and message-rich staging for future generations, we will witness the evolution towards a more just system that reconciles the human being with nature. In this way, its creator makes a call to the performing arts to play the role of vehicle of human values solidarity and justice with our own nature.
