La Barque Acide

The End is Nigh !

A work in progress-presentation

A beginners guide to the end of the world.

Based on the premise that everything is fucked up, but nothing is lost yet, they take us on a post-apocalyptic acid trip where everything is crucial, but nothing is serious.

It is the end of the world as we know it, of the society in which we live, of humankind and of the systems which were created to allow us to live together. It’s also made up of micro-apocalypses: The toast which falls butter side down.

The atmosphere is poetic and dystopic. The piece uses a consumerist aesthetic where circus explores the use of recyclage of everyday objects. Welcome to a world seen through the eyes of La Barque Acide.
