Set in the world of childhood and adolescence, this solo performance focused on the theme of difference interweaves text, moving images, lights, objects and songs. Through a series of scenes, we follow the intimate, silent monologue of the Child, from her birth into the world to her awakening into adult life. The focus of a stage crowded with anthropomorphic lamps, the Child reveals her emotions, her inner feelings. She grows, confronts herself, forms a shell, and finally decides gleefully to overturn standard ways of seeing to unveil the richness of our singularities.
