“Les passagers” is an adaptation of Albert Camus’ “Myth of Sysiphos”. It shows us the last 45 minutes of someone’s life in realtime. We see a man trapped in a box. He is getting ready for the most important event in his life. In doing so he thoughtlessly performs daily acts like shaving, changing clothes, taking a shower, etc. Trough the delirious action we get to know bit by bit his story. We see the protagonists of his memories starting to take shape. They -the passengers- start crossing the stage before the first spectator arrives and keep crossing it during the whole performance. Each single one of them represents a character of the society.

Just in the last few minutes of the performance its starts to be obvious what the man is preparing for: the death.
