An old neighbourhood destined for demolition makes room for a dehumanised modern city. But even the best-set plans cannot withstand the unexpected… As the night goes on and the city falls asleep, the dreams of its inhabitants intertwine and transform the city into a place of infinite possibilities.
Les somnambules evokes these contemporary urban transformations with irony and poetry, sketching a city whose many contours are redrawn by its inhabitants.
This story unfolds through a spectacular large-scale model of the city brought to life by shadows and lights, with four puppeteers and two musicians leading the audience into a swell of imagination.
