    As we are storytellers, we strongly believe that tales should evolve the way things have done through the ages and besides, Little Red Riding Hood shouldn’t only be afraid of the wolf.
    By word of mouth, before the eyes of the world, from parents to children, without making everything so easy… Because we want the audience to conceive a landscape to become engrossed and just smile… Because these days happiness is a way to resist.

    Tres-tac is the process of three souls which walk hand in hand and are connected by something else than their umbilical cord: the need to look into the most intrinsic nature of a woman as well as the different egos lodged in her body. A journey to the intimacy of three characters who come on stage thanks to the symbiosis between the three arts they represent. Dance, theatre and music. Thus, we look for the crossover and balance in which they complement each other.

    The broken life is spinning, it’s turning round. Some of our plans are ruined and some others which we could have never thought become part of our lives. I couldn’t have ever dreamt about being a mother; it just happened. I barely realized the way that the wildest side of me had prevailed over the other role sold by society. Never in my life have I been so real but while giving birth; never in my life have I been so close to myself; never in my life have I been so age-old. And as a fruit of my loins, my heart was broken into two pieces. Two heartbeats, two lives even when rythm was the only thing which soothed the pain in the midst of purrs, songs and bumps.

    Only one heartbeat will hold them; temperament means independence and the “flamencorary” movement plays the game of making them be together and later keep them away from each other.

    Being born and being reborn, living and splitting, giving up and seducing… Because our heart is our soul and our soul has got tempo… Because tempo is set by your feet.
