Where are the stars born? Which attraction operates for a new connection to illuminate, like an unknown star, an entire existence? The universe expands, a love relationship is developed and one day the tree of generations is read as the map of constellations. Astrophysicist, the heroine of this history works in space-time. Painter, the hero explores parallel worlds. And yet, when the couple is formed, the laws of distance and duration are submitted to great relativity. After Dark Circus, Romain Bermond and Jean-Baptiste Maillet multiply plastic, musical and visual processes, combining them in new ways to approach the intimate and the cosmic, the universe and love.
