The proposal by La Fura dels Baus retrieves a symbolist vision of the characters, strongly characterized with their ancestral elements remain in the middle of the scene with his clothes wrapped light and stage design. All this in a slow and continuous rotation of hues, highlights and shadows that evokes the deepest ecology and forgotten of our existence.
