Le Potager

Centre stage, a greenhouse. Inside, a singer, a guitarist and a drummer. Their rock music and songs have us swinging our hips, while the four walls come alive with videos and colourful paintings: little boots explore the ground, a bee forages, the leaves quiver and worms squirm. Meanwhile hands sow seeds, water the earth, and wait for the crops to grow…

A mixture of theatrical performance, concert and immersive video, Le Potager recounts in words and images life in a garden, to enjoy to the fullest. Together, everyone dances freely and marvels at this greenhouse on which the simplicity and beauty of nature unfolds. An electrifyingly sensorial experience that will no doubt thrill the little ones!
