Who made the first move, the woman or the man?
Myth tells us how the Creator accidentally caused this first encounter and how it has transformed the destiny of humankind. Drawing from the world’s great tales, Linda Edsjö and Abbi Patrix guide us through our innermost selves in a series of first steps – towards love, journeys, the other world and eternal youth. The intimate relationship that is woven between spoken word and music bestows a light-hearted, tender and moving touch to thispas de deux. The story and the music, just like man and woman, acquire a new dimension.
The richness of that work with multiple hands opens a natural path for the music of the stories.
