Originally commissioned by the flautist Wissam Boustany, this marionette bites the strings to free himself from the constraints and doctrines of society, religious authority and all those who impose their beliefs on him for control. This piece depicts this struggle against these doctrines by the three ‘Nos’ one says in Lebanese, ‘hu’u’, ‘tut’ and ‘la” which is incorporated in the different contexts of the piece.
