At the border of itself, a traveler finds himself alone at the foot of the great wall. To cross it, he will have to learn the hopping language of the inhabitants of TONG where vowels and consonants explode in a sound opera on the tip of the tongue. He will discover the world of the exponential, where a chair can rule an entire army, an apple containing all the secrets of the universe and a phone playing all the symphonies!

Inspired by Ursonate, a sound poem created by Kurt Schwitters in the 1920s and 1930s, La Fille Du Dairy plunges into the world of Dadaism, this particular and surprising artistic movement. The show explores the theme of the unknown. The unknown that is an integral part of our lives, whether large or small, whether we are children, teenagers or adults. The unknown to cross, to discover, to tame. The unknown that arouses fear and curiosity. Finally, how to be transformed by this unknown without annihilating.
