Two groups of people cross the city together through parade: a group of actors and a Choir that accompanies them with a constant sound. Each action is supported by the poetic word and its evocative power. Performers, Choir and Word celebrate life, the birth of a new hope embodied by a perfect living being, Hope destined to lift the fortunes of an old and decaying world. The parade is joyful, it is a celebration. But something doesn't work, during its triumphal advance the body of the perfect being jams and falls, as if dead. "How do you get up after a fall? How do you cope with failure?" Actors and Chorus are called upon to answer these questions in the new Face to Faith production The human measure | I Yard - Playing a city. Only through collective collaboration can a new course, a new celebration, a new faith, which also involves the audience and becomes a ritual, begin. They are called to transform despair, a fallen body and their bodies into something else, together.
