Le Petit Versailles Garden Serenades/Bad Feminist Readings
Please join us for an evening of dark fairytales, which will unfold as music, projections, taxidermy, words, haunts and dreams. We will enthrall you with musical saw, voices, stories, strings, keys, reeds, bellows, costumes and hybrid creatures.
