Short piece, 6 years +
Alma returns to the Magdalen Islands for the holidays. Little kitty Philomène’s delicate whiskers aren’t the only ones expecting her. There’s Aunt Fabie and Uncle Harry’s hen Olga, with her mood swings, as well as others. A gust of wind still blows within Alma’s heart; a storm of memories left upon the sand… and then there are the stars that chase the darkness away.
RUNNING TIME: 15 minutes
Marie-Pierre Simard fell in love with puppets over 20 years ago. This universal and timeless art was the obvious answer to her longing to create. From the drawing board to the stage, she explores puppetry with a passion and with a skillful approach to line, volume, color, movement and performance.
