Short danced tales inspired by the boundless charm of the poetry of Jacques Prévert and the drawings of René Magritte, sparking the imagination in a delightful fusion of words, sounds, images and movement.
Inspired by the fantasy worlds of Jacques Prévert, Dominique Porte has created a piece for young audiences. Three dancers and a musician mischievously explore the era of surrealism. Like the surrealist artists who played with perception so as to set reality askew, the choreographer opens up to a new imaginary realm, revelling in a poetic universe that is alive with truth, simplicity and humour. For children aged 7 to 99!
