The musical narrative is built on a transdisciplinary crossing that, through a theatrical game, develops in a strange jungle, made of tin, with scrap trees, full of dangers and challenges, with characters that reinvent themselves in this environment. The action takes place in an environment of textures that dialogue with contemporaneity, inviting the spectator to reinvent itself.
