a multidisciplinary theater piece that follows the black and white paths of a political thriller, inspired by Gaspar & Ulysse Gry’s comic strip “Un monde en pièces”.

New-Ebony: a society portrayed as a chess game.
“What if our society was a gigantic chessboard, with a king, rebellious pawns, and “Ladies”, migrating from another boardgame, threatened with expulsion? Between manipulation, corruption, fear of migrants and the rise of totalitarianism, this political thriller sketches the current events of a society caught up in the spiral of a destructive game.” Gaspard & Ulysse Gry
