“They were all broken and yet unbreakable. They existed together as a united whole, a powerful orchestra, the organs knotted in random order, a large quivering body. And I was one of them.
A totalitarian society with closed borders, bordered by a river. On the other side remain the remains of a community of resistance fighters inspired by the Guerrillas of Monique Wittig. In the capital of the closed territory, various characters tell each other, their aspirations, their memories, how to survive, hide and sneak into a world where books are prohibited. A dystopia in which the crises we are going through today are reflected. A poetic and incandescent choral novel, where we talk about the emancipation of the body, the spirit of rebellion and sorority. A tribute to literature and its emancipatory and subversive potential. "
Admission is free within the limits of available places, restricted gauge.
