Les ombres portées

Pekee-nuee-nuee

The Show

Premiere May 2011, Festival Excentrique (France)

Shadow and music theatre, suitable for all ages from 4 years old

In the darkness, a mysterious box lights up ; a machine kicks into action. An explorer, a fisherman and a musician set sail to cross the ocean, moved by an undefined quest. Their destinies mingle in the mysteries of the deep.

These adventures play out in a theatre of shadows, a luminescent belly filled with metamorphoses, reflections and transparencies. Pekee-nuee-nuee is an oneiric and musical production that defies classification. Every scene unveils a fragile, vivid world in black and white, yet evocative of the entire prism of colours.
