Les buveuses de café

Two elegant figures, afflicted by a furious obsession for symmetry, take their coffee amid whispers of agreeable truths in a living room of velveteen comfort.  Except that… certain anomalies gradually creep into their behaviour, the carelessness cracks and opens onto tiny abysses.

For both women, a struggle ensues: between social posture and intimate lapses, between representation and self-destruction. In fact, they would happily drink more coffee to face the consequences.
