Friche la Belle de Mai
Poetic and physical, visual and musical, fragmented and rhythmic, deliberately hallucinogenic, this is a story about the contrasts we are all made of. From our desires to fly to our roots on the ground. From what we must learn to what we must leave behind. A tale about verticality that is freely inspired by the myth of Icarus and his desire to ascend.
