A man traces back the origins of his troubles in the realm of love to better understand the cause. Difficult to grasp, the couple dissolves in the vapours of alcohol. Reality and fiction collide over a poetic narrative evoking disturbing images and seductive in its crude language, without euphemisms.
A forceful text, at once funny and touching, a theatrical adaptation inspired by the works of Kadinsky. Surrealism, reconciliation of man with himself through the dream, the desire, the rebellion and Her, mediator between the world and himself.
