“Art and its superpowers”
  • ≈ 50 minutes · No intermission

A snake wants to fly, and the moon falls into the water! In this delightful journey of visual discoveries, made-up songs and poetic puppets, art reveals its secrets and even its superpowers. What if there were a little bit of artist in all of us?

To enter the world of art, you need a magic door! Sylvie Gosselin has built one and invites you to go through it! On the other side, an intriguing museum. Led by your guide-storyteller-puppeteer, follow the wandering pointer to the works of art. Each is a story, a model world inspired by the luminous artist Paul Klee. This multidisciplinary, and quite magical, solo achieves the impossible: it succeeds (just wait till you see how) in REVEALING THE INVISIBLE.

Depending on public health guidelines, this show will be presented in-person at the NAC. Visit How the NAC is responding to COVID-19 to learn more. 

The show is approximately 55 minutes with no intermission.
