La Tribu Hurluberlu

The Hurluberlu Tribe

La Tribu Hurluberlu tells the story of three young girls in the desert who, after meeting an aviator fallen from the sky, set off together on a journey full of extraordinary, challenging ordeals, their odyssey peppered with sandstorms, scorpions and snakes, lack of water and deceptive mirages. A providential shaman comes to their rescue in this magical world, using his ancestral knowledge for the benefit of the dehydrated adventurers.

A multidisciplinary, festive and energetic performance, La Tribu Hurluberlu was a resounding success with young audiences and critics alike when it made its début in 1999 and 2000. With its playful spirit and its entrancing world, the piece makes creative use of a striking visual environment and highly physical movement to tell the tale, seamlessly blending together dance, theatre and video imagery. This dynamic, colourful production generates a “state of well-being based on sheer pleasure” (Le Devoir), and serves as an excellent introduction to dance. Bursts of laughter, delight and enchantment guaranteed.

93 performances of La Tribu Hurluberlu were held from 2000 to 2002.
