Company Akté


Arnaud Troalic and Chloé Giraud

A leading expert in artificial intelligence, André Toujours, is organising a conference in 2019 entitled ATTENTION
His goal: to find volunteers to stop the mental castration caused by the proliferation of audiovisual streams. 
As a spectator in 2023, take part in the re-enactment of this controversial conference…

In the space of 60 years, the first human activity after sleep has shifted from work to watching image streams.
ATTENTION takes as its starting point a text by Bernard Noël, “Le cerveau disponible”, about the power of domination of the audiovisual market and the logic of passivity that it generates.

Each of us has the freedom to close our eyes: this closure cannot be a solution, but it can teach us that we usually keep them open without realising that this is an act. – Bernard Noël

In the press

Arnaud Troalic plays with the illusion of not playing and disrupts the relationship between the stage and the audience. At the border between theater and documentary, reality and fiction, ATTENTION asks the questions of a connected society and the digestion of the daily ration of images.
