Julia works as a diviner in a circus. Blind since she was a child, she prepares to go on stage every night. Then begins her ritual of concentration which retraces an extraordinary life, in laughter, in songs, in images and in emotions.

But who is Julia? What is her power and where does it come from?

Who are these strange characters who appear and disappear around her, both strange and familiar?

For this Musical Theatre, no instruments, just voices, those of the actress Mélodie Valemberg supported by O!Boy, an a cappella vocal quartet singing sometimes in the purest tradition of the Barber Shop, sometimes deviating towards polyphonic styles borrowing from the traditional music of Georgia or Sardinia.

Le Froissement du Brouillard is at once an opera, a play, a tale, a comedy and a drama… In short, a show to discover!
