Les Chemins errants (Montreal)
All audiences, 3 years +
“Can we knit a scarf from silence and keep it for those freezing cold days?
Is there such a thing as love that never fades?
If we follow our hearts, where do our bodies go?”
A scrap yard, a desperately lonely robot, a laboratory where sounds are created before our ears and a passing train like a silent void in our memory. A lively poetry of sound with shadows and puppets.
“This impeccable show, combining music and theatre, invites children into the very heart of a world of poetry and mechanics, filled with love. A must-see! — Julie Jacob, Réseau Accès Culture Montréal
RUNNING TIME: 35 minutes

Founded in 2010 under the name Les Dragonneries, the company became les Chemins errants in 2015 through the initiative of Karine Gaulin and Édith Beauséjour. Les Chemins errants’ multidisciplinary approach focuses on the senses through imagery, puppetry, movement and live music. The company’s works reach out to both young children and the young at heart who come to the shows with them. Au train où vont les choses… is their third production.
