Belinda is hungry.
Belinda is earthbound.
Belinda is trapped inside a body that refuses to do what it is told.
She is victim of her voracious appetites, her dreams, demons and desires.
Belinda can’t breathe.
And then one day she hears a voice calling.
Words, gesture, masks and circus elements portray Belinda’s struggle, her journey of discovery, her battle to break free and fly.
