The project is in creation.

Sea Me! questions the origin of life, of our body, through the metaphor of the abyss and the aquatic element. Sea Me! develops this poetic by taking "the sea" as "the mother". Through the poetics of rites of passage, the sea is presented here as a liminal space, a space of metamorphoses, an engine of our quests and a connection to our deepest memories.

The sea contains many secrets and invites us to approach them if we are ready to listen. Its currents make us dance wildly, its colours and corals dazzle us, its seaweed tickles our nostrils, its mysterious creatures surprise us and if we look closer, this vast universe can reveal something deep within ourselves.

Sea Me! is a sensory discovery of another world, where touch, sight and sounds remind us of the intimate cocoon - the mother's stomach - a room through which all humans have passed.

With an interactive installation, we let the audience dive into our story like a dream.

RemoteControl in collaboration with the Norwegian company Liavaag/Lindberg create physical and interdisciplinary pieces for adults and now after years of instructing children in theatre, for the first time they are creating a theatre piece for children. Their aim is to offer children a form of theatre that does not ask them to merely be a passive spectator, but rather one that engages their senses, imagination and love of adventure.

It is important to note that Sea Me! is still in phase of creation and therefore it is not finished. The project will be develop through a series of residencies that will take place between France and Norway. More specific at the end of the 2019 the two companies they will be in Nice, welcomed at the Entre-pont and in 2020 they will travel to La Maison de la Poesie of Normandy, France and at Dans i Trøndelag, Norway.
