+ Name Les Voyages de Capitaine futur A European cooperation project supported by Creative Europe, run by Cinekid, la Gaîté Lyrique, KIKK & Woe Lab.

+Theme “Super-natural: stories of worlds to come”, an exploration of the transformations of the hybrid ecology era. Our technological environments are increasingly becoming natural elements in our lives. A host of singular species coexist in this new world: virtual animals, mutant plants, electronic viruses, insatiable computers, memory rocks, tentacular networks, autodidact algorithms, domestic robots, cybernetic forests and more. Is this new organic, composite world an intermediate stage of natural evolution or a big bang of singularities? What tools must we craft to survive, experience, adjust to and negotiate these new types of coexistence? The call aims to elicit poetic visions, narrative approaches and fictional tales that recount a land where humans are no longer central and undergo a metamorphosis upon contact with heterogeneous beings.
