Ruth is an ancient and future creature, a being that transcends humanity. In its movements, it dances a cycle of love and nostalgia, not heroic, but soft and tentacled. Ruth is an evolving event that contains multitudes and that everyone, in the end, will want to caress. Ruth is a Tout Public (children aged 6 and over) performance that invites spectators to generate an emotional kinship with the shapeshifting creature who asks the question “how can I live and die well on a damaged planet?” The audience witnesses the creation of a poetic refuge, a stronghold of alliances with elements of nature, the invention of a new language, and the delivery of secret signs to the future.
