Between loving embraces and fighting, bodies mix up and amalgamate becoming a shapeless mass, a creature with multiple limbs and indistinct outlines. They appear alternately to be living sculptures, a ball of bodies without faces, in an almost motionless tension or in a movement of reconfiguration. Cuddles is a living cluster of skins, legs, arms, screaming and slamming. The costumes and the fresco were made in collaboration with artist Célia Boulesteix.
