Waves, all that Glows Sees

Presented by Le Théâtre Des Confettis from Canada in collaboration with Lincoln Center Education

Written and created by Véronique Côté
Age 18 months–4 years, Family Theater, 40 minutes, March 21–April 1, 2018

Experience the joy of theater in this carefully crafted experience for the very young, written by Véronique Côté! Adults with their little ones follow a pathway of shells and stones into a warm, serene tent on the stage, where a gentle seaside scene awaits. One man makes music, while another dreams of the ocean. Through sand shaping, shadow puppetry, and inventive sound effects, the two performers create tender, magical moments of sea turtles, seagulls, fish, dune grass, ships, and sky. As time passes, one of the men plays at diving into the water in search of treasure, bringing a poetic undersea adventure to life before your eyes.
