Soeurs d’armes / Sisters in arms
„Soeurs d’armes“ (Sisters in arms) is a singular piece of musical performance and theatre. Through narration and song, a young woman’s story is told. I recount decisive encounters during my suburban teenage years in secondary school. It was then that other young women helped me to fight, dress and behave. Assembling various personal memories, I recall both negative and positive experiences during this meaningful period of life. A path between childhood and adulthood.
