L’après-midi d’un foehn is a boundless game of imagination in which the company Non Nova uses simple plastic bags of every imaginable colour to recreate a dream world, defying gravity. A unique show in which its author works with the idea of human beings as creators and as destroyers.

Phia Ménard founded the company in 1998 with the idea of taking a new approach to juggling, using the scenic and dramaturgical structure of each piece. “Non nova, sed nove” (Not new things, but in a new way) is the founding principle of the company. Her many multidisciplinary projects have brought together artists, technicians and thinkers with diverse experience and perspectives who form a professional team with Phia Ménard as the artistic director.
