A brother, a sister, a house. They do not go out. Their habits have turned into rituals. Regularly, strange noises resonate from a room within the gigantic house. The two inhabitants simply curse them. Over time, their living space invariably shrinks. Inspired by a novel by Julio Cortázar, the Portuguese composer Vasco Mendonca and the English dramaturge Sam Holcroft plunge into the secrets of a couple. The main characters are interpreted by two singers, supported by a chamber music ensemble.
