Elisapee and the northern lights
Can you hear the snow and the stories it tells us as it falls?
Gently enter the snow-covered world of Elisapee, a little Inuit girl who will take you on her dogsled to the land of the northern lights. Let yourself be lulled by her beautiful language, Inuktitut, and discover a world where the gigantic and the tiny stand alongside. An intimate show wrapped in lights, sounds and emotions.
