Patrick Corillon (Liège)
Soixante minutes pour se bercer d’illusions

In homage to Robertson (1763-1837), a Liège master of phantasmagoria, this creation plunges us into the center of pure imagination, the one that abolishes the frontiers of time and the human understanding. This journey has as its guide a man of no age who, thanks to his particular relationship to reality, can take spectators to the country of sword-swallowing men-crocodiles, chain-rats, tightrope walkers or snakes to the hand that sees. Revisiting the towers of barkers and other fun fairgrounds, the show uses a cutting-edge technology called Visual Syntax Recognition. Currently developed at the University of Liège, its function is to generate images in real time as accurately as possible a story told. The Shadow of the Scarabea will surely rock you with illusions.
