G’zaagiin Maleńki - Je te promets une forêt
For publics of all ages
Imagine a performance, in the shape of a forest, a gathering of parents and children under a quiet canopy. You are part of the decor, you can sit and listen to the warm and authentic voice of Emily Marie Séguin, actress and musician of French and Anishinaabe origin. You can also let resound, everywhere in your body, the incredible range of sounds made by Abitibian cellist Marie-Hélène Massy Emond… Because not only the strings of her wood instrument make music!
And the water that thaws, flows, and feeds the forest, who will play it?
Behind her console, a cunning sound-effects engineer activates his singing bowls and his microphones to contribute to this forest’s weave, which is filled with sounds, textures, and tastes to relish with all the senses, at any age.
The team of Voyageurs Immobiles promises you a forest, but not any kind of forest, one in which you participate, one that is born from the meeting of the drum, the cello and the melting ice, one from which we rise a little happier and alive!
- Q&A session with the artists following every performance.
