“A free-wheeling ball”
- In-person event
- Ages 6-12
- ≈ 60 minutes (including a talkback) · No intermission
Lively bodies and rolling wheelchairs. All this is unleashed on stage! Three impressive performers spin these great machines, dance with them, take them apart to transform them into puppets, luminous wheels, disco robots ... what else? The only limit is your imagination.
When you see a wheelchair, what comes to your mind? Our three all-terrain perfomers see it as an amazing vehicle with endless play possibilities. You’ll even get a quick course in taking wheelchairs apart, and witness a balancing act on wheels between the reigning champion and a formidable contender. Arranged like a joyful string of theatrical pearls, this tender and playful show for dancers and objects draws us into a universe where bodies are often in unison, but where each one reveals itself and tells its own story through movement.
In a word, it’s the story of a brilliant dancer with a disability, and of people who share, for the duration of a dance, all the fragility and beauty of being oneself. Together.
Without words (except some passages in French) ● Ages 6+
Because the experience of going to the theatre begins long before you step into the performance hall, families are welcome to arrive 45 minutes before the start of the performance to warm up their imaginations. Interactive installations, crafts and other surprises await you in the Studio Foyer!
