Lou dans la nuit, a luminous creation on the fear of the dark presented at the Maison Théâtre from Wednesday

La Maison Théâtre

March 9-20

La Maison Théâtre will present LOU DANS LA NUIT from March 9 to 20. A luminous and intriguing creation, LOU DANS LA NUIT explores the theme of fear of darkness and the unknown using a sought-after contemporary aesthetic. A real scenic journey between shadows and light for children from 4 to 8 years old, the show invites young audiences to tame their fears, play with them and even love them!

By day, Lou is not afraid of his home. He has fun in her room, in the hallway, but never ventures down the basement stairs… too worrying. On a night with a full moon, a loud noise rouses him out of sleep. Where does it come from? What is it? Lou decides to leave his bed and sets off to discover his house plunged into darkness and suddenly feeling foreign. To the rhythm of the ticking of the seconds, he faces the shadows, shivers to the sound of monstrous snoring, tames his living room and arrives in front of this door always locked… the one that leads downstairs. Will he go down there?

Created by the Confetti Theatre, LOU DANS LA NUIT enchants the audience with an enigmatic narrative voice, video projections and monumental lighting that transform the space in fascinating ways to reveal Lou’s journey on this night like no other. Thanks to this unusual scenographic and dramaturgical proposal, vivid emotions make their way, not to mention the addition of a sparkling touch of humour.  With this show, the Théâtre des Confettis once again places children at the centre of its concerns, for their new, curious and vigilant gaze, for the dream, poetry, openness, and intimacy they instill.
