In a scenographic space that is architecturally constructed in real time, this performance honours an unusual material: adhesive tape.
The three members of a feminist rock band, escaped from a potential totalitarian regime, build a new participative habitat on the stage of their exile. They unroll and follow this tape, tracing graphic lines and drawing spaces in the middle of a circular device.
Unpredictable and random, the sticky tapes invade even the bodies of the performers and reveal an invisible relational fabric. With nothing, they create huts, play with their physicality as dancer-puppeteer, actress or sound composer. Their collaborative sisterhood guides the audience towards a questioning of the notions of shelter, metamorphosis and sharing.
The imaginary of female wrestling is invested in a playful way to destroy everything and start again elsewhere, better.
