On the morning of the 2012 Winter Solstice, an undetected celestial body crashes to Earth. The shock is so violent that the Earth tilts a quarter turn on its axis, moving the North Pole to the Equator.
A small village in Yakutia (Siberia) wakes up under a burning and still sun, fixed forever at the zenith, while in the Southern Hemisphere plunged in permanent darkness, Anton Sakhalin and his Mayan companions flee a frozen Mexico, in search of light. After 7 years of aimless wandering across a devastated world, the two communities meet at the bottom of the Bering Strait, now dry.
That is where, together, they establish a colony where everything needs to be re-invented, even darkness. In this new world without day or night, shadows always fall in the same direction, and time unfolds infinitely, always on the same day.
Now we are in 2042 : the grand-daughter of Anton has collected the only remaining archives of the “Circadian World” pre-dating 2012. Finally completed, this large fresco tells a story through music and virtual images, the story of the ancient world of day and night, which will bear her name: “Taïga maya”.
