Freshly laid off from their small canning factory, three overexcited chicks arrive in laughter; Recycled as street performers, our three “desperate housewives” in blue overalls offer a show of claiming acrobatics with a strike of trapeze.
Femininity, prowess, joyful provocations and canning, an explosive cocktail to taste with a raised fist and hair in the wind!
You feel like having a good laugh? So do they…
Enjoy the show!
