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.
