Experience the creation of the world in just an hour, in this remarkable piece of theatre from France

This show attempts nothing less than the evolution of the universe, from the first glimpse of light to our contemporary world – in just an hour.

Germinal is the brain child of French artists Halory Goerger and Antoine Defoort, of performance collective L'Amicale De Production. It begins with an empty stage, darkness and four actors. In the opening scenes they discover light, microphones and speakers, effectively creating the show as they construct their world. As things get more complicated and the characters face social interaction, societal expectations and their own mortality, Germinal gets to the core of what it is that makes us human and how community can be maintained in our modern world.
