In the field of science and technology that built the Western world there are only machines which accelerates. Whoever invents a machine to slow down will be considered as an absurd man" Paul Virilio, 1991 Dromos is an allegory of the "Dromology concept" as developed by French philosopher and architect Paul Virilio so as to explore the meaning of today's world. As he becomes aware of the essential part that Speed plays in the organization of our societies and territories, and of its ongoing acceleration, he predicts an "integral" accident.
"Impressive in both the choice of medium and the message, we look forward to sitting back and enjoying the show - or become part of it."
"Get lost in an immersive symphony celebrating the science of speed"

When increasing the speed, you augment impatience
Dromos is a metaphoric AV Performance that takes its concept from the philosophical work of P. Virilo who is mostly known for founding the idea of Dromology (science of speed). Dromos invites audience to a criticism experience of the ’peed’ role that impacts all aspects of our daily lives. During 40mns, it focuses people attention on this essential factor that shapes our world. With its message, Dromos invites you to wonder about your relationship with progress. It’s an unconventional work with an original sensorial approach, placing the audience inside an immersive environment. For 40 minutes attendees are plunged into a 360-degree immersive universe where minimal and experimental sound textures converge and synchronize with sleek, dynamic visuals invoking the aesthetic of speed.
