A very little walking red-dressed girl .... Dark woods ... A big bad wolf ...
Universal, timeless, the story of Little Red Riding Hood always talks to children and adults with the same intensity.
As a naive tale, it questions philosophical items: follow the marked trails, or go toward the unknown ? It is an introduction to the fear, to the desire.
It is the mirror of our duality, one civilized side, and the other one belonging to the wild, dangerous, and unpredictable but also beautiful, and marvelous world.
Little Red Riding Hood is a tale of initiation to the life: fall, get up, find out, give up the past, open up the future for finally going into the unknown, the potential danger inherent in any human actions and any existence.
In early 2016, the Groupe Demons et Merveilles, creates a new visual spectacle, seeing through child’s perspective. Petite Rouge crosses his own story with candor and innocence, and an indestructible appetite for life. She is the best part of ourselves : confident, open to the world, trusty.
With her, the world can be enchanted thanks to the poetry of her stare, and we can believe that the innocence could triumph over the brute force.
For Petite Rouge, The Démons et Merveilles Group is coproduced by the Cultural Center Georges Brassens of Avrillé, subsidized by the City of Angers, the EPCC Anjou Théâtre, Region Pays de la Loire, the Foundation Mecene et Loire and is supported by: Centre Culturel Le Forum CHAUNY (02) - Théâtre du Champ de Bataille ANGERS (49) - Festival Gamineries PONTIVY (56) - Scène Vauban GRAVELINES (59) - Espace Culturel Louis Aragon SAINT-VALLIER (71) - Espace Culturel Henri Salvador COULAINES (72) - Festival Au Bonheur des Mômes LE GRAND BORNAND (74) - Centre Culturel La Traverse CLEON (76) - Théâtre Alphonse Daudet COIGNIERES (78) - Centre Culturel Les Salorges NOIRMOUTIER EN L’ILE (85)
