Motus, under the co-artistic direction of Hélène Ducharme and Mathilde Addy-Laird, boasts a group of creative women: Sounia Balha and Ximena Ferrer, as well as illustrator Pauline Stive and puppet designer Pavla Mano, adapting three traditional tales about The Wolf! Welcome to the show: Little lockdown legends.

You’ve heard of Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, and The Wolf and the Seven Little Goats, right? Of course you have! Well now it’s time to experience them anew… with a little pandemic twist! Don’t worry – the Wolf has been a constant presence in fairy tales for centuries!

Each of our three actor-puppeteers performs a different tale, playing and manipulating all its characters! Welcome to toy theater (paper theater)! We’ve combined the inventiveness and creativity of an illustrator and puppet maker with just a touch of craziness in the lyrics and staging – bringing a playful world to life, filled with metaphors and unexpected twists!

Each tale runs for about 25 minutes, intended for an audience age 5 and up, and we have developed a range of performance styles and approaches that maintain and respect current health and safety protocols. When you work in street theatre, you can adapt to any situation!

One table per tale – and that‘s it! Everyone is safe, and everything happens on, around, above or under the table! The audience is in front, seated comfortably and safely distanced!
