There must be something magical about these “tree fairies” as other fairies have bent over them before. Also very talented. Beginning with the duo Agnès and Joseph Doherty in writing, acting and music. They benefited from the benevolent but very sharp looks of Renaud Cojo and Sonia Millot. Finally, the scenography was developed by another strong duo: Philippe Casaban and Eric Charbeau, the lights by Eric Blosse and the costumes by Muriel Leriche.
So many good reasons to discover all this week this musical and poetic tale inspired by a famous Irish legend according to which the trees harbor fairies who must be respected and protected in order to preserve the forest’s hidden riches. In the rhythm of the songs, the audience learns that the forest heals, why the laurel symbolizes victory or how the trees can communicate with each other. A playful, rhythmic, humorous and ecological show.
“Les Fées de l’Arbre” from Tuesday 19 to Saturday 23 April at 2.30pm and Sunday 24 at 4pm, Théâtre du Pont Tournant. From age 6. Information and ticket office: https://www.billetweb.fr/les-fees-dans-larbre
