Théâtre des Petites Âmes (Montréal)

Walkabout exhibit for all


Walkabout exhibit in Montréal’s Ahuntsic neighbourhood… and online.


From February 25 to March 18, 2022, ten windows will light up and illuminate the Ahuntsic neighbourhood in Montréal. Inspired by meetings between ten senior citizens and six artists, a wonderful team of artisans has prepared an artistic itinerary to be explored at dusk… and to continue to explore online:

Animated windows, short puppetry films and documentaries. 


Located in Montréal’s Ahuntsic neighbourhood, Théâtre des Petites Âmes has been creating work for younger audiences for the past 14 years. This year, we decided to reach out to senior citizens for inspiration and comfort.
