One particular night, they decide to get together in their school premises and devise a theater piece around the theme – or pretext – of the city of Strasbourg.
But all too soon, they’re up against a ton of difficulties. What story should they tell? How should it be structured?
How can you create theater without scripted dialogue and characters? How can they combine the various elements of personal research into the city undertaken by each of them?
How can they transform reality in order to give rise to fiction? How can they work together – the fifteen of them! – when they’ve chosen to forego engaging a director to oversee proceedings?
Questions which inspire them to express their feelings about the city, politics, utopias and the theater.
