In the heart of the Rungis Market, there is the fish market. In the center, there is the head of a man, neatly cut, deprived of ears…
This is the bloody beginning of the investigation lead by Le Poulpe, also known as Gabriel Lecouvreur, also known as Abbi Patrix. For the rest of the story, let the righter-storyteller be your guide. He will present you everything on a silver platter: the fights, the sex stories, the deep literary references, the whole against an essential backdrop of antifascism.
You will attend a story like a real detective fiction. A sound immersion permanently interacting with the story will take you on a trip and will turn the show on an actual performance, a tale-concert.
