In periods when established methods of communication are in crisis, there are shifts at different levels that can be embodied in the ritualization of everyday actions. Gestures, articulation, intersubjective understanding declare themselves with a high degree of ambivalence. The characters in the story reveal the hidden meaning of corporeality and community in the biomechanics of insect metamorphoses, in the signs of atypical manifestations of nature and sexuality that organize connections between human and non-human. This is a sect, a beehive, or a love triangle – just landmarks and markings for trying to understand what is happening. In these moments, an unprecedented journey of friends marks new horizons for an impossible community – a community that keeps separate.
