Poils Rats
Live @Monophonic Festival

By Floriane Pochon & Tony Regnauld

Those that resist

Pullulating possibles, thronging hopes

Sometimes, night can be incisive, night can gnaw the sleepers. At night, an entire people of kinky creatures would settle, those who infiltrate anywhere, those who resist anything, including the traps of an History biting its own tail.

Now, let’s blow a hole of fame in our reality, this is Monophonic 2014. Now, let’s encounter the champions of survival and persistence: rats.
