The Island of Sanity, a spoken electronic opera, describes a society striving for freedom, peace and prosperity.
Four actor-performers and two musicians, picking sounds into a bass guitar and an electric guitar with original music, create a complete production through constant improvisation of the music and the living text of the play.

"A sharp-witted electronic opera, its visuals full of imagination, humor and absurdity. An unconventional experience of theater, a performance mixed into a groovy social allegory"
"Well-made satirical play with an off-beat theatrical style, that manages to tackle many burning topics in an original manner and with poetic, nuanced text. A very good show "
"An ethereal musical backdrop…a political and sexual satire…Funny and frightening at the same time, the twisty plot kept us on the edge of our seats"
