A meeting of dance and song (age 4 and up)

Dedicated to the poetic universe of Jacques Prévert, Pierre-Paul Savoie’s new creation is called Playing Hooky (French title: L’École buissonnière).

Through a cycle of song and dance celebrating childhood and its effervescent imagination, Playing Hooky takes place in the playground and classroom, finding what’s fun and poetic for some kids but also a marginality for others. The lively, light-hearted choreography spurs the quartet of versatile dancers to sing too.

For this project, Pierre-Paul Savoie continues his fruitful collaboration with composer Benoît Côté who wrote the music for Tales for Naughty Children and The Chairs. Based on poems and texts by Jacques Prévert, Côté’s original music for Playing Hooky will be performed by singers Alexandre Désilets and Amylie.
