Cie de l'Alambic

A strange princess in red ceremonial garb embarks upon a solemn procession, leaving nothing but fabric in her wake…

Princesse métamorphée is a dual being, half-woman and half-animal, a hybrid creature at once marvellous and frightening. Dressed in layer upon layer of costumes, she slowly sheds these outer skins, leaving successive identities scattered on the ground like gingerbread crumbs, discarded traces of her dreams… or nightmares.
In her striking ceremonial attire, this mysterious princess breaks out of the dream world to appear before us, gradually shedding her clothes as she advances. Her majestic body and striking red attire offer a luminous tribute to nature and the environment.
