In French

 

A lumberjack and his wife, living in abject poverty, decide to take their seven children deep into the forest in the hopes of finding a better world… Can you guess what happens next?

Two actors, and a musician playfully and enthusiastically tell us the wonderful story of the little one who, fearlessly, and with cunning and intelligence, tackles a giant ogre to save his older brothers’ lives and his family’s future. This powerful and inspiring allegory continues to foster courage and self-confidence in our children.

 

Running time: 45 minutes

Technique: Object theatre

 

Information and reservations: Contact Tania Baladi, cultural mediation coordinator, mediation@casteliers.ca
