Through my Eyes

Through my Eyes

A dancer enters the stage and discovers a ball. Intrigued, she moves toward it, carefully. As soon as she touches it, the magic of the stage is unleashed: the lights go up, the decor appears all around her, shadows play their tricks… and transform one dancer into many! Now there are four of her, to play together and discover a constantly changing environment: a graphical world made up of forms, colours, textures, sounds, and illusions. A topsy-turvy playground where dance continually shifts with the context, this performance full of surprises invites audiences to see the world afresh through the eyes of a child who explores.

An ode to the power of imagination, Through My Eyes stimulates the child’s senses and brings us back to one of the loveliest things about childhood: a tireless capacity for wonder.

Reviews

”After seeing Through My Eyes […], parents will undoubtedly feel the urge to present their offspring with more opportunities to bask in idleness. Children will also likely have the impulse to take any momentary absence of external stimuli and transform it into an infinite variety of possibilities.”
JEU, revue de théâtre

Through My Eyes is a piece that honors art both naturally and unpretentiously. The dance company Bouge de là has created a highly artistic production that is altogether rich, bright, and of a beauty rarely seen. It captivated the toddlers until the very end, when they were left asking for more.”
Le Devoir
