« Free music, noises and sounds traveling around crazy story telling, sound -poetry and strange short movies »
Wolves Stories is dedicated to the female improv scene, from some very experienced players to a handful of bright young talents, working in various fields from poetry to soundscapes. A wolf is traditionally associated with women. Loving & protective of her children, but a fierce attacker when necessary. We invite you to a portrait of women, through music, texts, films and experiment.
