The treasure is developed around a meeting between dance, the repertoire of Quebec children’s songs, theater and youth illustration.
In connection with its 30th anniversary (2019-2020), PPS Danse begins the search for a new project for young audiences that has been beating its heart for a few months, tentatively entitled The Treasure. After devoting himself to the adaptation of works from the French repertoire for his latest youth creations, PPS Danse draws this time on the vast repertoire of Quebec works of song and illustration for the purpose of constructing the structure of the new show. This rich material will become a new scenic formula composed of small textual, musical and icono / scenographic jewels.
One rainy day, two children, a brother and his little sister, are confined to the house, their noses glued to the windows. Boredom quickly gives way to creativity, which unfolds as if by magic in front of the eyes of the spectators. Dance, song, puppet theater, drawing and collage are all stepping stones to propel their inexhaustible imagination. Their spontaneous creations offer a lucid, poetic and humorous look at childhood, but also at the adult world that serves as their model. The joy of living will finally inhabit this day and will remind us that the rain is still only temporary and that the present moment deserves to be lived fully. Anchored in values of humanity, fraternity, sharing and creativity this work will reveal the greatness of the little ones.
