RITUÆLS is a mystical artistic experience confronting the infinitely large to the infinitely small, the cosmic with the microscopic, delicately questioning our place in the universe and in relation to our environment.

What they say about it

A sensory landscape that evokes timelessness… the real, the important.

Pan M 360

Moved, moved to tears, shivers, hairs standing up, the spine straightening on its own, the heart tightening, a smile forming, tenderness received, all senses on alert … in the end, I just want to say thank you.

Audience member

Whenever we make something, especially something new, we may not always know what we’ve made. It’s therefore quite marvelous to discover something displaying genuine mastery, created with a deep understanding of the issues facing the audience.

Just listening to collectif9’s unbelievably moving Rituæls concert. Goosebumps. Mega dopamine jolts. And also deep reflection.
