An experimental and human voyage
Stuck on the highest branch of a tree, two sisters of royal blood disagree about their future and wonder how and if they will ever find their way back to their kingdom.
Guided by an inner voice, they follow their path, and in their search of the golden key... they find the prince.
An absurd tug of war takes place in which the potion meant for Death and the potion meant for Love, are alas, interchanged.
Now what will become of «happily ever after» ?
A subtly absurd fable. A fantastic realm filled with symbols.
A world where the landscape is made of sounds, smells and images.
A story with theatrical movement and flavours of circus.
An urge to dance, to tell a story.
