Libelle

2021

Performance for young audience of 7+

 

Every day, when the time is right, Libelle closes her eyes, invents a private language, and starts recounting her story… This story is not meant for us to understand, but feel, watch, and sing along. Part dance-show part music-concert, this performance is where Libelle and her friends play with words and rhythms, mixing the sound of their voices and drums, and merging them into songs and movements. Shifting between acoustic and electronic sounds, they morph into cool, mysterious and colorful creatures.

The process of developing the piece included regular workshops with children.
