This work is part of the "Modern Bestiary" series. It is again about movement, choreography, a dance that is a proclamation of freedom, an intense desire for childlike joy. To choose life, even when times are hard, to try to rise, to carry our colors high: to tend towards the elegance of movement as well as our attitudes. It is also a satirical wink to the need to parade, to boast, to chat on the world's theatre, in the social game exacerbated in the Internet era. I like the way fables inform and amuse us, through the animals, about our human behaviours.
