The contribution aims firstly to show the productivity of a tension between immersive strategies and performative strategies, by addressing a twofold complementary question: on one hand, how does the project seek to represent a fiction of climate and social anticipation despite the constraints of theatrical figuration and, on the other hand, how does it seek to mobilize performative strategies (hostile to any fictional representation) in the service of a science-fiction narrative? We secondly attempt a socio-institutional presentation of several aspects of the project, which begins with a brief study of its positioning, specifically the establishment of a republican discourse and a reflection on narrative governance, both of which place the artist in position to create the conditions for another possible citizenship. We seek to show that it is first and foremost a question of creating a cultural macro-event that uses science fiction theater as a hook for the public's adherence to a factual macro-narrative that concerns them directly: the eco-social crisis that threatens their city, and the different scenarios available to respond to it as a society.
