Wednesday, December 18th at 3 pm, children and their parents will meet at the Princess Grace Theater for a funny, captivating, ecological show where fairy-tale characters are severely affected by climatic disturbances. A show that should not be missed during this holiday season!
In Pourquoi Blanche Neige ne se réveille pas (et autres contes recyclables) (Why Snow White does not wake up – and other recyclable tales), all the stories end up with a different end from what we are used to. So what do we tell children now? Three of the seven dwarfs in Snow White, who decided to stay asleep despite Prince Charming’s efforts, take things in hand to save their fairytale world and at the same time, our planet. Because it could well be that all of this is above all linked to climate change. Emilie Letoffe and Caroline Rousseau designed a devilishly effective staging for this humorous and light spectacle signed by Fanny Roche, which also gives food for thought. Caroline Borderieux, Pauline Prevost and Quentin Morillère incarnate several different roles. We rub shoulders with the Little Mermaid, entangled in a fishing net, Pinocchio who remains a prisoner of his wooden body and the Blue Fairy who becomes trapped in toxic clouds.
A show that is currently meeting with great success at the Théâtre de la Contrescarpe, located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, and which is a breath of fresh air in a world that is increasingly lacking just that. An ecological comedy that allows children to become aware of the phenomena that surround our planet today, as they hold the key to our future. It is not for nothing that the Princess Grace Theater chose this show, which meets the ecological ambitions of the Principality.
