A mother tragically dies in a faraway country. A few years later, her son decides to share his memories with her and fill in the gaps in her story. He finds her in the long lost paths of childhood, tells her of the man he has become and the pain of missing someone so deeply. In his mind, buried images of continents they travelled together get mixed up with his real life. Can we thread together the holes in our lives using poetry as a golden spool?
The playwright Jean-René Lemoine delivers an epic and polyphonic text on the human condition, just like the ancient tragedies. Three actors and three musicians weave together this universal tale, the graceful melancholy of which will leave one feeling profoundly moved.

A sweeping, dark and dazzling musical poem on the beauty of filial love that can transcend everything…. even death.

let the adventure begin!
