Loss of Grasp

Description (in English): 

“Loss of Grasp” is an interactive narrative about the notions of grasp and control. What happens when one has the impression of losing control in life, of losing control of his/her own life? Six scenes tell the story of a man that is losing himself. “Loss of Grasp” plays with the grasp and the loss of grasp and invites the reader to experiment with these feelings in an interactive work.

Description (in French): 

Déprise est une création sur les notions de prise et de contrôle. 
Quand a-t-on l’impression d’être en situation de prise ou de perte de prise dans la vie ? 
Six scènes racontent l’histoire d’un homme en pleine déprise. 
Parallèlement, ce jeu sur prise et déprise permet de mettre en scène la situation du lecteur d’une œuvre interactive.
