The opening of an art exhibit in which the artworks put on display are the actors themselves and the mystical journey that has led the actor-protagonists to this very moment. Three theater artists and a dramaturge have confronted themselves with the task of creating something. From one of the performer’s minds emerged: The Machine That Extracts Pure Thought : a living metaphor of their art and the inner-workings of their artistic process.

Inspired by visual arts, unfettered by theatrical modes, the autofictionnal piece takes the form of a one-man show for three characters. How is it possible to explore the tormented soul of an artist in bizarre, comical, and quirky ways? How to convey his intentions to the audience and make art out of the actual process?
