EMMAC Terre marine is a successful work that transcends the genre’s borders. Emotional and philosophical part arises as a poetic mirror of human existential quest, and will resonate among both teens and adults.
A few moments of beauty in a world that really needs it, a few minutes of poetry to forget the sterile brouhaha: EMMAC Terre marine is a show that is good for the soul.
“A treasure exists only if someone is looking for it.” [Richard Desjardins stated in the show.] Look no further, it’s there.
It took just a few moments to realize that the multidisciplinary artist Emmanuelle Calvé, who first worked in visual arts before heading to the dance and have created all his puppets, was very successful in integrating specificities of these multiple languages.
