Folle Époque celebrates the centenary of the Roaring Twenties and proposes to revisit this historical period considering the ambiguous and therefore difficult to define times we are living in. A series of hypothetical narratives that refer to both periods are brought to stage, placing them face-to-face with one another.
The 1920s merge into 2020, as in an interplay between real-reality and fictional-reality - in a kind of mise en abyme. The craziness of these times and their inherent excesses mirror the ethical and moral conflict of post-modernity.
