"Tonight, it will be six months since the world faced
a sudden shortage of petrol,
having cut off all communication networks since then.
And on an alpine foothill, in a small village in the Vercors,
a small group of people living together are discovering their own way to live life differently.
But when they stumble upon two jerry cans full of gasoline, the fuel takes on the smell of perfume

Wonder Petrol is an anticipated street show;
a circus, dance and musical fable,
that confronts a very close reality with poetry and derision,
the near end of the oil era.
Under an imposing crane, the six characters will face the vertigo of tomorrow while questioning their dreams and ambitions of yesterday.
