TALES OF REAL CHILDREN
Convinced of the need for a true artistic encounter, Le Carrousel places at the core of its creative approach the question “What should we say to children?” and reflects deeply on artists’ self-censorship when dealing with young audiences. Supported by creative research that breaks through limits and boundaries, co-founders Suzanne Lebeau and Gervais Gaudreault used their passion to form a repertoire of original works that are considered, in Quebec and abroad, to be milestones in the history of theatre for young audiences.
For more than 40 years, Le Carrousel has sought to tear down the walls between audiences and between practices, out of the conviction that theatre for children must also reach out to and even disturb adults. Today, Marie-Eve Huot defends this unique vision of childhood and art as she joins Gervais Gaudreault as the company’s co-artistic director. This handover is a window opening to the future and will secure a tradition to be transcended so that the story continues and evolves.
