Part Rocky Horror Picture Show, part demented fairy tale: this is the story of Louis II of Bavaria, petrified and found, alive, in a forest. The mission of three sister witches, if they choose to accept it, is to defrost him and unravel the plot.

The crazy, fantasy king Ludwig II of Bavaria appears frozen in the surreal forest of Which is Witch?. A seducing and reenchanted tale is reborn here, pulling us into the swirl of Marie Losier’s fantasy. Beasts and witches, whispers and rituals take us away and merge with ice, with steam, with dance, in an entangling and frantic viscerality, carnal and musical; a living eye moistens and peeks into the world.
