Composition musicale – Nicolas Ducloux

Two women, two men, a robot and a hen are on their way to the Red Planet to become its first settlers…
A space musical “made in France”, Mars-2037 brings mankind’s greatest dream to life.

12 June 2037. After many unsuccessful attempts, a private company manages to launch the first human voyage to land on Mars.
The rocket takes off. On board are three astronauts – an Israeli, an American and a Russian – a fetus in gestation, a robot donated by the President of the French Republic, a stateless hen and the richest man in the world – a Brazilian who has devoted his fortune to financing this space programme.
The spacecraft is heading away from Earth for a journey with no return and will experience its fair share of crises and accidents. In the meantime, singing seems an obvious response to the contemplative state of humans orphaned from their home planet and euphoria grips the crew… From the trivial to the sublime, Nicolas Ducloux and Pierre Guillois have created an enchanting musical, in which philosophical fables alternate with cosmic music hall. Objective Mars.
