Inspired by medieval myths, Fontaine de Jouvence (Fountain of Youth) - POESIS 4 is a live performing and participative path in public space. The attendees are invited to visit 8 living and evolving scenes that present the major adaptations imposed by age, through an intimate experience. Guided by François and Agathe's confidences, and stories told by elders, the public is confronted by the question : why do we refuse to age?
