The Tale of How is a short opera in masterly images that tells the tale of a love-sick octopus who begins to devour strange creatures, half bird, half piranha. The story is not that important however; The Tale of How is an extremely sophisticated and bewitching production that simultaneously evokes Jerôme Bosch, Claude Ponti, English nursery rhymes, Tim Burton and fantastic. It was produced by the South African collective The Black Heart Gang (alias Shy the Sun), whom we also have to thank for Ringo (2004), presented in the World Tour program (Festival Black Movie 2010, Geneva).
