Premiere 2021


In Nebula, Vania Vaneau approaches the human body-nature relationship as the meeting of force fields in a post-apocalyptic context. In a kind of archaeology of the future, Nebula questions what other relationships to time, craft, soil, and chimeras could emerge to draw a new cosmogony. What mutations and hybridizations could come out of chaos?


With the collaboration of visual artist and scenographer Célia Gondol, the musicians of Puce Moment (Nico Devos and Pénélope Michel) and Abigail Fowler for the lighting, Vania Vaneau axes her research on the relation between metamorphosis, apparitions, materials, and gestures that are at once archaic and telluric. It is about revealing the original state of the elements, creating healing rituals, fertilizing the space, and exploring notions of catharsis and ecstasy.

Nebula is also a crossing into the unknown, a moment of eclipse to glimpse at other possible worlds. Here, the future and the past meet, time flows in a spiral leading us to a “prehistoric science-fiction”.


Nebula is a solo, created in two versions: one for natural and outdoor spaces and one for indoor spaces.
