Amazons. A nation of mythical women, warriors whose furious powers and mercilessness have created bizarre stories.
Speed, strength, resilience, strike, endurance, target, fire, good night !
Who says that violence is not the answer ... ?
… and who is stopping me ?
“The Amazons are a dramaturgically very well-constructed work that, despite the high energy demand, manages to escalate. They are again a brilliant mischief of a renowned creator. You will swallow every movement, you will have goose bumps and you might be a little afraid. It's really a jolt!”
