A dream-like comedy surfing on the wings of the maddest desires. For the amateurs of parallel worlds, those who like to flirt with the improbable and glide balanced on the frontiers of dreams.
Jean-Christophe Maillot activates here the three driving forces of his imaginary: theatre, music and dance for an orchestra, in an enchanting disorder.
Tender, mischievous, ingenuous, dazzling, earthy or serious, three generations of dancers represent a human microcosm that gets entangled with humour and grace in the net of its impulses.
Fairy, animal, dancer… what if it were all man?
