A family dinner. A pleasant atmosphere. Father, mother, son, lulled by their songs, their repetitive movements, their leitmotivs that patiently weave together their connections. The Other arrives with his "worrying strangeness".  Now four, a new composition is created. The beautiful harmony is over. The "bug" creates his work, demanding the others to change their performance. Using four talented and inventive actors Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski, to whom we owe the ingenious and torrid A Ronne II, has asked three composers to imagine three unique scores, imagined for the actors, with the complicity of IRCAM. Here she continues her exploration of the possibilities of musical theater, revisiting the universe of the string quartet. A new formation, a body quartet.
