The Collapse Project contains ten songs for 58 minutes of movie with live performance. It deals with the event of a global collapse of our industrialised societies on decades to come, and the emotional impact that it can create on people that can foreseen this eventuality.
The earth-system, our only planet, has finite ressources and hosts our modern society. With a globalised based economy, our model is dependant on financial systems, and strongly dependent on fossil ressources in all the aspects of our daily life : food supply, clothes and consumer goods, health, transports, entertainment and new tech brightening everyday life up.
But consumption of fossil and mineral ressources has an end, while we have based our ideal of society on growth. In parallel, we assist to massive extinction on biodiversity, the future result of global warming become unpredictable and unavoidable, against a backdrop of growing inequalities, population movements, conflicts and famines. From then on, the eventuality of a lasting and non-reversible global collapse become possible.
Against this dark picture, we still have the possibility to think the world by the mean of art and imagination. It becomes possible to share our fears, doubts, anger, sadness, resignation, fights and hopes with people who care, to give credit and meaning to the collective as a creative force to go forward and face the problems to come, while we change of paradigm.
