Quitter la gravité. Anthologie de l’Association des Astronautes Autonomes


The present efforts of the Dionysus Programme are geared towards the Dreamtime project, through which AAA groups around the world are imagining what life will be like in autonomous communities in space. Dance settings provide a unique opportunity for collective dreaming, not the passive dreams of sleep, but the visions of the lived body in perfect motion.

“Take a dancing flight”,, 1999


We were told a few centuries ago that the world was flat. We have been told all along that the world is closed. My friends, the world is neither flat nor closed; the earth is both round and open. Our first seed pods in the form of Apollo astronauts and Russian cosmonauts have breached the placental membrane of the Van Allen belt. Our species, ready or not, or like it or not, is ready to move off the planet.
