They’re covered in it! Mud from toes to crown! From this raw material, earth, the characters fashion clay islands and landscapes of shifting ground. Believe me, by the end of it, the stage is all turned around! What do you think? Is it just for fun? Not at all! The question they ask is very serious: Where does the world come from? Nathalie Derome’s father is a potter, and she grew up in a house where making a mess was synonymous with learning. In Magie lente, she patiently reconstructs a piece of her childhood to share with the audience, along with some songs and poems. Conceived and written by Nathalie Derome and Steeve Dumais Ages 18 months to 5 years.
