She is the daughter
She is the mother
She is the daughter and the mother Three generations

Two ancestors watch the world go by.

Between mother and daughter the taut thread of tenderness.
Flutes in combat as they tackle life.
Flute anger
Danced sensuality
A sharp and taunting mask
The imaginary child of a merry motherhood

The cycle of births stretching out to eternity.
A mother gives birth to her child who gives birth to her grandmother,
Who gives birth to her daughter, who gives birth to her child, who …

Lullaby on the flute for three generations
Handing on to the child
Fight on the piccolo
Walking the world
Dreamy planet
Six sides for one versatile body Dancing on the mother’s body

Masked dance of death
Flute scream
Flute sob
Dance of breath

Between mother and daughter the thread of tenderness.

Three ancestors watch the world go by
They laugh
They have all the time in the world.
