Shows

Babaloune

Presented by Productions Totem contemporain

In an ecological fable told by the whale Babaloune, children are brought together around musical instruments that are both fascinating and unusual. Traveling across the oceans, Babaloune describes the changes that she sees. She tells us about fish as old as the world, about plankton and about survival. A story of friendship and music that catches young and old in its net!

Concerto au sol

Presented by the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec (SMCQ).

This is the story of a musician. One day one of his hands decides to become a man and lead us into a fascinating and poetic universe. A ballet of hands unfolds before the eyes of the spectators. They are immersed in a colourful and changing world of sound and moving sound images. Sensitive and surprising, this is a multidisciplinary show for the whole family. See the show description on the SMCQ site.

Collection Tigouli

From 18 months old

This collection of CDs for toddlers invites them to be carried away by music. By taking time to dwell on the sounds, shapes and colours, and experience them, these recordings encourage children to use their imaginations to create stories in which music is the thread. The sounds of nature as well as traditional musical instruments are woven together and gently complete each other: a true awakening to sound!
