For Children, parents and all those who love stories
A patchwork of short stories in English on behaviour of the human kind
From the cosmos, a black bird came for a visit to the only planet where, it is told, the presence of water allowed life, the blue, the green planet…
There, a singular creature, blind and deaf to tales, legends and myths which surrounded him, seems to rule that world … How far true ?…
Notes from the director
The human psyche, naturally animistic, has a fundamental, organic resonance with nature. Therefore, tales, legends and myths have dug in it the material of a symbolic language, constitutive of the imaginary.
But, what is left nowadays of that deep nature which had inspired us? How its absence may badly affect the power of imagination?
The play attempts to revive sentiments related to nature through its literary references and aesthetics.
