Three women dialogue freely through the movement, inspired as much by their personal stories as by figures representative of the feminine.
In a role-playing game being able to remind in personalities as Virginia Woolf or Patti Smith, they are successively funny and sarcastic, deep and lucid.
Playing with cultural codes, words and languages, they offer us a jubilant expression of their femininity in a mixture of genres and forms.
In their quest for freedom, they invite us to awaken in each of us the desire to be free and unique, convoking the need to overcome.
“Women have sat inside their homes for millions of years, so now the very walls are impregnated with their creative power.” Virginia Woolf
