In few words:

A nymph bee hovering to and fro in its nuptial veil, a dragonfly hesitant before its first flight, a ladybird discovering the art of seduction before metamorphosing into a scorpion: this original choreography is full of tiny, unexpected protagonists. The result of an extensive exploration of the corporeality of each of the species portrayed, this performance offers children a surprising and poetic vision of a world with which they maintain strange and paradoxical relationships, based sometimes on mistrust or fear and sometimes infused with curiosity and wonder. In duos, solos and groups and through movement, costumes and music, the five dancers transform themselves into real or imaginary insects dancing the various stages in their short existence. Before our very eyes, this appealing yet informative game of transformation reveals the cycle of life in its infinite fragility.
