The Wonder Room of Madame Mimi – 10:30am
February 1, 2020
Madame Mimi comes home from her year long travels and shares her stories, showing wonderful objects and treasures from all over the world. To name a few: Madame Mimi found Leo, the elegant giraffe in a Parisian flea market; she learned how to make a tea with a magical teapot in Brighton; and saved the little doll Masha from a garbage bin in Russia!
There are many other beautiful treasures to discover and the audience is more than welcome to add to the stories, interact with Madame Mimi, and ask her all they want to know about her travel around the world. On the world map, Madame Mimi draws her travel and all are welcome to finish the drawing together with her, adding their travels and greetings!
What Is Living?
February 15, 2020
Using storytelling, live drawing, shadow puppetry, one sad fish and the content of a suitcase, we ask our young audience: What is living? Are you living? Is this fish living? Is the Earth living? Is a living room living? Can your teddy bear be living if you say it is? Which, of course, begs the question: what does it mean to be alive? In this funny and creative cabaret-style performance, we go on a journey with our audience and explore, as a child might, the world around us and encounter important social and environmental issues along the way.
