GET IN TOUCH

A play for the little ones to learn and for the older ones to remember! Or rather, the little ones to remember and the adults to learn… Sweet, tender, human, touching, humorous, childlike, musical, trying to tell the children what they already know (and maybe even remind it to their parents): that we are all the same despite our diversity. And it does so not through a teaching character but from a game that shows us the beauty of setting goals, hunting them and making them happen. The subtle sceneries (which are often created by the bodies of the actors themselves, as well as the surprising costumes stimulate the imagination of the children, while the inventive music and choreography try to familiarise them with classical composers but also with the cultures of other people. What touched me the most is that new creators find so imaginative and special ways to comment on serious issues of our time and “educate” young and adults… So don’t miss any opportunity, go see this show with friends & family
