Interact with the audience (second step of the project) :
The audience will be invited to participate and make the story evolved through the show. As a member of the one of the 4 tribes, the public will be able to interact with the artists on stage, along with the story and simply by using a game.
In that context, the end of the world, represents only an introduction of the story of a new world brought to life.
The tribes together and as a community, is showing us a sort of equilibrium and harmony that is more in tune with nature.
