The space between Plume’s house and Taciturne’s house is a chasm. A whole moon can fit into it! With its playground-like set and its moving performances, this show about overcoming our fear of the unfamiliar accurately measures the internal temperature of a child’s heart.
There’s Plume, funny, talkative, and, yes ... maybe a little scattered! Next door there’s Taciturne, for whom music is an important refuge, but who is quite deserving of her rather gloomy name. What do they have in common? An enemy: the night! From the union of their opposing forces comes a strong defence against the black thing that swallows the sun every evening.
In this celebration of friendship, director Marie-Eve Huot brings fresh new colour to this classic story by Suzanne Lebeau. Because childhood hasn’t aged a bit!
