In a subversive and playful manner, dwelling upon the anatomy of human psychology, the choreographer studies the mechanisms of the creation of meaning for the world around us, drawing inspiration from an emblematic historical figure, Queen Elizabeth I.

She positions herself on that fine dividing line, where the body is freed from fears and resistances, loses control, and opens itself to what remains secret, repressed, and untold.

Five performers take as their starting point a musical universe that flirts with the excess and lightness of the 1980s, chasing the fleeting aspect of happiness, carefree fun, and the sense of sharing with others this unexpected joy without censorship.
