Cie Démons et Merveilles

A masked theatrical exploration of the unspeakable. When the silence of abused children becomes a deafening roar.

A garden, laughter, a child at play, the carefree certainties of young life… And then the pain, the suffering… If only it could all be like it was before, if certain things could be unseen, unheard…
With Les Petit Silences, Démons et Merveilles addresses a tragically timely subject with sensitivity, in a piece for audiences of all ages.
The subject of childhood sexual abuse is handled with great caution and a certain poetic distance. As well as its undeniable emotional impact, the show is also remarkable for its intelligent use of music, its inventive direction, and, above all, the stunning performances of the actors.
