In their XL – or even XXL – bodies, three teenagers live their emotions to their fullest, simply because for them, everything inside and outside is extreme and extremely funny.

These characters monopolise our attention. Their bodies are in states of mutation, their sexuality on alert. Everything is in upheaval: their awkwardness make them acutely aware of the “me” that lies buried within their bodies and under many coats, gradually shed through the scenes. Their recklessness is their strength, but also their deepest weakness. Emotions burst forth to the fore – from tenderness to anger, from fresh youthful feelings to hot-blooded intensity.

These teenagers want to reinvent the world, and to disseminate new fruits within it... let’s do it with apples! A symbolic fruit that we can taste, admire, destroy, give and exchange. One with which we play, dance, smile at and weep over. An innocuous fruit has thus transformed into an excuse to play, to revolt, to seduce and transform.

Taking inspiration from the work of Fernando Botero, choreographer Irène Kalbusch explores the notions of personal reflection, the quest for oneself as well as our sensual and sensorial awakenings, through a remarkable work replete with humour, burlesque and drama.
