Tenon Mortaise (Montréal)

All audiences, 3 to 8 years

What if we altered the story just a little? … Several Little Red Riding Hoods lead us into an imaginary forest to tell us their version of the tale, a tale built on words, silences, gestures, music and the shadows of dancing wolves!

Founded in 1996 by Denys Lefebvre and Diane Loiselle, Tenon Mortaise’s multidisciplinary approach combines theater, mime, dance, puppet theatre and shadow puppetry as well as pictorial art and video. At the crossroads of various genres, the company develops its own theatrical writing, marked by poetry, where image and gesture are as important as words.
