“A show in the shape of islands”
- In-person event
- Ages 3-8
- ≈ 40 minutes · No intermission
Permission to fantasize: If you invented your own island, what would it look like? A tropical paradise or a lichen-covered rock teeming with reptilian creatures? Because islands have a lot to tell, the creators of L’Illusion invite you to tour their imaginary archipelago and explore the many versions of this dream space, isolated from the rest of the world.
Three star-sisters, a puppeteer, a dancer and a musician go on an adventure—and you’ll never believe what they’ll see! At every stop, a new surprise, a new encounter. So they have to find a new way to communicate, to connect to each other, to be together.
The stage looks like a cosmic landscape, with wave-shaped arches that ripple and transform the space. But who are those UFO-like puppet characters roaming those interstellar seas? You’ll also see balls of light flying around and hear instruments playing music so enchanting you can almost touch it. What more can we say?
Oh yes! Your five senses are already saying, “Thanks for the wonderful trip!”
