The concept of the piece is about the metamorphosis of an animal, who becomes
slowly a human being. The piece is focused on the evolution of the animal, and the
different phases of the metamorphosis.
In the beginning this insect/spider/caterpillar is inside the cocoon. The first phase
will be how to break the cocoon and arrive on earth. The second phase shows how
hard it is to learn to move and walk on the floor. Once he manages to stand up, he
starts to become more and more human with still the strange sides of the animal.
We can see how this evolution is hard and sometimes painful with the very eccentric
gesture of the animal, who is tear between two metaphysical phases. He is insecure,
indecisive, and we can see his trouble translated into contortions and explosions in a
During the last phase, the physical metamorphosis has exhausted him, but he will
have to make a last effort by learning how to speak by himself. The last steps of his
evolution will be then the consciousness.
