Bringing together dancers and disabled children, L’Âge d’or is a delicate journey halfway between documentary and fiction, cinema and performance, focusing on bodies that don’t fit the norm.

Made with and for children with cerebral palsy at the Institut Saint-Thys in Marseille, this film coupled with a performance combines dance and new technologies. Wearing virtual reality glasses and carried by the dancers, the children explore new sensations. A shift in perceptions of reality takes place, gradually moving from documentary images to fiction rooted in their encounter with the dancers. The audience then puts on VR glasses to experience this beautiful empathic encounter at first hand and discover new realities.
