Is it possible to stop travelling ? Is there an end to the trip ? What would happen if the world stopped turning ?

From 15 to 20 March 2016, the House of arts and storytelling organizes the 17th edition of the international festival of storytelling and monodrama, in collaboration with Monot theate.
