|"Beautiful botanical images and captivating
rainforest sounds emerge from every direction,
the evolution from caterpillar to butterfly has
bever been so brilliantly staged"
Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio
Watch a butterfly move. The fluttering of its wings looks as if a paintbrush were painting on the air; but it also looks like a dance. This delightful dance sometimes lasts but a day. It all happens between dawn and sunset.
Onstage there is a butterfly house made of gauze and colorful images projected onto a white carpet and two big wings enwrapping all the space. Two dancers move, play, paint in the air; they are light and invite the audience to discover a fashinating process, the slow metamorphosis which transforms a chrysalis into a butterfly.
|In the show children are in an immersive space, interact with images and sounds and thanks to the use of hidden sensors, they can dance, paint, or simply be taken by the poetry of this surprising scenery.|
