Échos du sous-sol (Echoes from the Underground) is a show that takes the audience on a journey through cemeteries, asking questions about life, beliefs and filiation. What if the dead also needed to say something to the living?

Jean Genet once said: "The only place where a theater could be built is in a cemetery". Sometimes neglected today, cemeteries were once places of life. L'Atelier des possibles, a company that favors in-situ theater, has decided to take over the alleyways of tombs and turn them into a performance space. We follow in the footsteps of a woman who sets off in search of her dead, and on her journey comes across a philosophical cemetery janitor, a quiet grandmother and an overzealous civil servant. An immersive wanderer, Echoes from the Underground aims to lend an attentive ear between here below and the beyond.
