”It is a piece about me, because it is about you. It is about all of us. It speaks about our constant imbalance, our illusion of immobility and stability. Physical, material, psychic and intellectual. It is about our relation to success and fiasco. Our ascensions and our failures. Our need for rebirth, the need to be exposed to our fears, facing who we are: our worst enemy and our best ally.

Through an innovative scenic language combining circus and puppetry arts, this piece talks about tremors, utterances and confidence, frail lines, signs and features. It’s about threads and that little hair that connects our impulses to our rationality.”
