    Birds, an umbrella and kung fu

    Isn’t it better to be a bird? Humans are so hard to figure out! That’s what Mademoiselle Mouche thinks, anyway. So she goes to the gym to take flight training, and she learns to speak bird. One day, surely, she’ll soar into the air.

    Multidisciplinary artist D. Kimm has created an endearing character, slightly clown-like with her kung fu and hip hop. We like her instantly. Her funny stories and the oversize video projections of birds transport us. Time to leave dull cares behind and prepare for takeoff!

    You can’t learn without getting dirty!

    They’re covered in it! Mud from toes to crown!
    From this raw material, earth, the characters fashion clay islands and landscapes of shifting ground.
    Believe me, by the end of it, the stage is all turned around!
    What do you think? Is it just for fun?
    Not at all! The question they ask is very serious: Where does the world come from?

    Nathalie Derome’s father is a potter, and she grew up in a house where making a mess was synonymous with learning. In Magie lente, she patiently reconstructs a piece of her childhood to share with the audience, along with some songs and poems.

  4. Music

    Kindergarten to Grade 6

    Searing summers, frozen winters, gentle spring rain, and brilliant autumn colours come to life in music. Alain Trudel and the NAC Orchestra explore Antonio Vivaldi’s vibrant Four Seasons, Astor Piazzolla’s energetic Argentinian Tango, and other climate-inspired music with the help of virtuoso guest artists.
