What is the sound of courage? The eight Cello Warriors are strong, agile and nimble-fingered. They go to battle armed with a cello and bow. The Cello Warriors make their instruments sound like swords. They create a labyrinth of unknown sounds in which their opponent gets lost. They fight gracefully by using humour and exciting music. A triptych about acting tough, winning and losing, vulnerability and the power of music.
