LOVE, BEAUTY, AND ANIMALITY: AN UNSETTLING TALE, DANCED LIKE A CHILDREN’S GAME.
A man finds a sealskin near a cave and hides it in his home. Later, at the same place, a naked woman, in tears. He comforts her and they have a flock of children! But one day the woman finds the sealskin. It is her own skin… Ambra Senatore and Fabrice Melquiot, a virtuoso at writing plays for young audiences, plunge us into the mystery of our animal side. The performers are simultaneously narrators, sound effects technicians, and dancers playing the children. Everything was written on stage, laughing and shivering all the way, with our children’s games as a starting point. An infectiously cheerful festival of happy turbulence!
