Maja tells us the story of a father, looking for the wolf who would have eaten up his son. The mother had disappeared some time earlier, leaving a huge void in the heart of the home. One stormy night, while the father and his son were dining, the wolf entered... For both adults and children, this modern fable shakes up the narrative plot of the tale by reversing the roles: here, the child relates, the adult is initiated. Maja is a rare performance, carried out by a highly cinematographic writing where flashbacks and time loops follow each other. A dreamlike, sensitive and powerful performance.

"A show full of sensitivity and modesty. Powerful too."
