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!
Ages 3 and up

Andrew G. Young, Elliott Loran and Ingrid Hansen

In a cozy, playful corner of the newly renovated NAC, young children share stories of family and friends, and the adventures and challenges of growing up. The stories are then instantly brought to life through puppetry by Canada’s Fringe favourites, SNAFU Dance Theatre. Join us afterwards for a stay-and-play session with the performers!
Only 100 seats
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.
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.
