Richard Morin and Francine Martin
The children that we once were, we still are. Childhood, that tender age of life, has been lived through by the adults who argue, yield, object, absolve. To be an adult and have children, to be a child and have adults, is to know joy, pain, tenderness, anger, compromise . . .
Tales of Real Children – these are children and adults, face to face, back to back, in situations that swing back and forth between the playful and the tragic, the unusual and the everyday, dream and reality, poetry and theatre . . .
This production is composed of six stories that explore the diversity of feelings and emotions defining relations between children and adults. The writing is unbridled, freed of all constraint, and the direction approaches the text as if it were a musical score. The result is a kaleidoscopic show that is sometimes funny, sometimes impertinent, always moving and touching.
Adults and young people aged 8+
