Inspired by an Algonquin legend, Slow Magic tells the story of how children separated the Sky from Earth, allowing for the hatching of the world and its evolution.
On stage, a sound artist allows the secrets of playful mechanical objects to resonate while two jovial characters explore and build the universe.
They aren't afraid of getting dirty or wet to share their attachment to planet Earth, its mysteries and its endless transformations. In Slow Magic, all the senses are called upon to celebrate the cycles of life.
The genesis of Slow Magic
"My father was a potter. In our family, dirt was rarely synonymous with uncleanliness. The soft smell of clay wafts through my first memories as a crawling toddler. With Slow Magic, I chose to return to this primitive and primordial material." — Nathalie Derome
