Excursion into the land of night
The creators of L’eau du bain repurpose the impressive set of White Out in a play for young audiences. The result is a landscape play that confounds the senses and draws us into a foggy night where anything can happen. Warning: dreams on the loose!
It’s a mysterious room, basically. No walls, no ceiling. A huge screen flickers with a fascinating light; the music envelops you in its shimmering cloak. Seven children in pyjamas seem to have lived there forever. Seven? Yes, real children on stage, and no sign of an adult to lay down the law. Make way for chaos and tangles of sheets! The valiant clan appropriates this territory called Liberty to conjure up all that their imagination imperiously commands: a forest of saturated colours, mountains that talk to each other in an invented language, peculiar journeys with an island at the end. But beware: the night is not without its dangers! Each new adventure in this surreal space is an opportunity for the intrepid group to question themselves, test the ties that bind them, and—why not?—redesign the world.
Performance is approximately 50 minutes with no intermission.
