School Performance: Pomelo, Ombres Folles, Puppetry from Montreal

FRI, Dec 1, 2023
10am & 11:30am

Without words, using puppets, shadow theatre and live music, Pomelo tells the story of a tiny, handsome, pink elephant, born under a dandelion in a garden.  With a lot of humor and sensitivity, Pomelo discovers the world around him, before experiencing a shock: the arrival of autumn, then winter! In love with his garden, sad at the sight of strawberry plants collapsing, amazed by a snowflake, Pomelo is the very embodiment of childhood.
This new production of Ombres Folles is an ode to nature and the cycle of the seasons, seeing things die and then be reborn, turning us upside down from one extreme to the other.

Pomelo is based on the book “Pomelo est amoureux” by Ramona Badescu and Benjamin Chaud (Illustrator).  Pomelo provides a captivating and enveloping experience!
