In a metaphysical nightclub atmosphere, two suspicious couples flank the illicit mistress of God. They conjure up images of birth and death. Obsessions with duality, sex and religion: can they be escaped? Through what bizarre disarray? What excesses?
The stars, during their adventurous life, burn their energy and transform the hydrogen of which they are composed into helium — a natural escape towards lightness — a fantasy which the protagonists of this tale will follow.
The stage has three large windows that open and close alternatively or together, allowing the actors and dancers to appear in large frames from which they never stray. A study on the image and the simultaneity of actions and movements, the performance is made up of three chapters with the respective headings: "Sex is good for you", "God is good for you", "Fun is good for you".
