Everything had been planned so carefully, yet...

Ô!: New York City, around midnight; amidst cigarette smoke and nighttime mist, a freshly married couple is getting ready for a long honeymoon, expecting it to be perfect and Hollywood-like.

Iiii! But the pink fairytale will soon turn to a grayish nightmare as a red-eyed wolf invites himself to their table, forcing their marital bliss to collapse into the abyss.

Ah! Within this funny/spooky turmoil, the two characters do their best to catch their balance, for better and for worse. All the while the storm is brewing in the distance...

A little weird touch that makes us remember mysterious ambiances from the 50s, a Hitchcock movie… David Lynch…

Agnès Limbos returns to FIMFA and take us into her humorous and wild universe, where she has fun congregating fantasy and reality, tragedy and humour. Object theatre to be enjoyed with pleasure…
