What if reality was only a fabrication of our brain? When we draw a comparison between the human brain and the universe, we discover surprising similarities. By the incalculable number of cells that compose it and their connections, the brain is just as impenetrable as the universe is infinite. The great fascination of the study of the brain is based on the hope that men place in it to learn what they are and to go a little further in the exploration of the definition of their existence.

Former biophysicist specializing in brain plasticity, now an actor, Yvain Juillard offers us during a conference-show to question the functioning of our brain in order to question the multiple nature of reality.

The brain, the seat of our memory, of our perceptions, of our identity, remains this organ that is both intimate and mysterious because it is misunderstood by most of us.


This show, through simple and playful experiments, wishes to transmit to the public the latest scientific knowledge in the matter. A unique opportunity to simply discuss recent discoveries in neuroscience.
