How can theatre and dance enrich each other and coexist in a single creation?

Guided by a dance professional, children are introduced to the art of choreography and invited to explore various ways words can inspire movement, and conversely, how movement can tell a story.


Le Petit Théâtre de Sherbrooke’s mission is to support the development of and attendance at theatre for children and youth by placing words and dramatic art at the centre of every project, always striving to reinvent storytelling and decompartmentalize artistic practices. The company creates and presents works that allow great freedom of interpretation, and trust in the young spectators’ ability to use their sensitivity and intelligence and willingness to experience new forms. In 47 years of artistic practice, Le Petit Théâtre de Sherbrooke has created more than 90 shows, performed in English and French across Quebec, Canada, the United States, France, Belgium, Switzerland and South America.
