    Les choses berçantes

    18 months to 5 years

    Azrieli Studio

    If you have an immense sadness, tightly wrapped in a ball of wool, what does it take to unravel it? The basic props are obviously multicoloured ribbons, paper birds, a guitar, and sandwiches to be cut. And then there’s the essential one: a sister with whom to watch the clouds drift by, a sister who knows that spring will return.

    Mile(s)tones

    Ages 6 to 12

    Azrieli Studio

    It’s raining notes. The trumpet is laughing, the piano is crying. Three laid-back virtuosos mix music like dough. Their instruments spout all the colours of the great Miles Davis, while hypnotic videos draw you into the mix. You may even be invited to jump on stage to become a conductor or beatboxer.

  6. Marco bleu

    Ages 5 to 10

    Azrieli Studio

    Marco meets Marco Bleu. He’s a mirror image of Marco, except he’s all blue. On his planet, it’s always a holiday; there are gift machines and a talking candy dispenser. Then, ding! ding!, the bell rings, and Marco has to choose: go back to his exhausted parents and the screaming baby, or stay forever in this fabulous place. A philosophico-spatial dilemma!

  7. Red horse, green horse, wooden horse, iron horse: you can have a thousand horses, but when all’s said and done, there’s none better than a horse of blue. A single one of his tears can become an ocean, a whale, a school of fish! With passion, a little girl tells us the horse stories her grandfather used to tell her, because even though his rocking chair is now still, something very precious remains.
