1518

A mysterious dancing plague took place in France in the summer of 1518. Mariotte sings her hymn to the ecstasy state of dancing, when nowadays the streets are empty and human flesh so distant.

The storytelling of « 1518 » is based on duality, using a distant historical event to reflect the present.
Both the musician Mariotte and the movie director Camille Lagaisse worked to find different ways of mixing time frames
to create a narrative cycle, using complementary elements, bringing together the seasons, the ancient and the modern.
