Jean Cocteau's masterpiece Les enfants terribles tells the story of Paul and his sister Elisabeth, who nauseatingly challenge each other to with games. In her version, Phia Ménard works with composer Philip Glass' adaptation of the novel. She draws a parallel between the body of an adolescent and that of an elder: both sometimes experience a feeling of isolation, of being cut off from society.

Carte Noire Nommée Désir starts with a funny story about colour and colonialism. That marks the beginning of a poetic journey on stage by a group of eight performers. They appropriate their own history as black women, in a country that has yet to decolonise its own imagination.

Inspired by Kathy Acker and composer Jacques Ibert, Knight-Night balances the figure of Don Quixote between fiction and reality. With song, text, costumes and choreography, they play a game of gaze with the audience while evoking an imagined landscape with fantastic situations.
