The project is supported by MAQAMAT Dance Theater, MIBACT, IIC Beirut and Zebra
Cultural Association (Silvia Gribaudi’s company supported by MIBACT-Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities since 2018).
In 2018 Out of Planet was hosted by MAQAMAT in Beirut for its first residency.

The next step will be at La Maison CDCN Uzès Gard Occitanie, in February 2020.
What can you say?
Being out of the planet,
But which planet?
Is it the one we inhabit, where we live?
Where we share spaces?
Is it our body, our mind?
More than ever, today one is looking for an image that is as far from oneself as possible.
The wish to be fake, visible.
Youtubers, Facebook, Instagram, talent shows: Got talent, Big brother, The X factor, The Voice, American Idol…
Every youngster should be a revelation
What is left behind, after all this visibility?
What does it mean to be famous?
Who decides? When? How?
Who is famous today?
What is the essence of being seen? Loved? Acknowledged?
Hello Youtubers! Here they come, into the fray! Here they are! The Out of planet!
