Inspired by the different seasons, Scenes from a Tree is like a herbarium filled with tactile sensations. Three tree-like fairies with handicraft skills make their way through the changing seasons that mark the passing of time.
While their voices are the work’s driving force, wool and knitwork form the major component of the visual landscape and the common thread that connects the stories, songs, nursery rhymes and everyday objects.
Scenes from a Tree is a series of poetic sketches that captures the feelings that come with growing up and establishing roots, like the trees we see around us every day. The show illustrates the small losses we suffer and the great discoveries we make on a daily basis.
Developed with the collaboration of educators and children from the La Sourithèque daycare centre (Montréal).
