Casteliers is launching its 2017-2018 season with three wonderful shows for the whole family. Performances will be held in Saint-Viateur Park in the Outremont borough and in Toussaint-Louverture Park in Ville-Marie. Casteliers sur l’herbe, as the series is known, presents works by puppeteers from Montréal and Spain that will delight both young and not-so-young audiences. This August, the puppets will take you on an imaginary journey where ancestral techniques and contemporary manipulation will tickle your imagination while the green grass tickles your toes!

Thanks to support from the Outremont and Ville-Marie boroughs, these performances are presented free of charge!

All shows are presented in French.
