PPS DANSE – Melding dance and theatre, English and Spanish version

Following the success of the work’s world premiere at the Cinquième Salle of Place des Arts on December 14, 2013, PPS Danse is now offering an English version of Les chaises/ The Chairs ! This astonishing version of the famous work by Eugène Ionesco has been staged and scored by choreographer Pierre-Paul Savoie from Lise Vaillancourt’s adaptation of the story for children. The show will be available to tour internationally starting in 2015, and will charm audiences aged 8 to 88 years.
A “little gem.” (Radio-Canada, 2013)

Having already conquered the hearts of 15,000 Canadians, Tales for Naughty Children – an adaptation for the stage of stories by Jacques Prévert – is continuing the adventure in Mexico. The work, produced by PPS Danse in collaboration with Chartier Danse, will be presented for the first time in Spanish at the prestigious Festival Internacional Cervantino from October 16 to 18, 2014. The tour will then take it to Léon and Méridà until October 22, 2014. This show, offered in English, French and now Spanish, is for children from 3 to 6 feet tall who enjoy fantastical tales. It combines dance, theatre, music and singing.
