The tip of my nose

SYNOPSIS

We return to our origins to reconstruct a common memory. Customs that make no apparent sense, but which lend logic to our way of being. Six bodies in play, six worlds. Drifting towards a joint and shared reality. We take care of each other, we behave, we slip, we push each other.

Hand-to-hand and singing as an opportunity to change everything and invite you to discover our peculiarities at close quarters.
