In Ovid's “Metamorphoses”, a now depraved humanity is exterminated by a terrible divine flood, which leaves only a meek elderly couple, Deucalion and Pyrrha, alive. Left alone, they will be the only architects of the repopulation of the species, reborn from the stones that fall behind them.

Starting from this cathartic gesture and feeding on other sources and suggestions, such as the traditions of the Taiwanese Buddhist Temples, the Indian tales of the Mahabharata and the Nietzsche tests; Our performance develops through evocative images, which mix dance, on the ground and on stilts, acrobatics, the use of fiery objects and sets that seem to come to life, puppetry and object theater.

There is also a hall version of this show, which will debut in 2021
