Since 2007, Des mots d’la dynamite has settled into the very early childhood sector. The company's works intended for this age group, were all developed through partnerships with disseminators and with child care centres (CPE). We sincerely believe that the children we meet during workshops are the co-authors of our shows. They are, in a sense, our mentors!
2022 | Biblibum
The cultural mediation activities of the 2021-2022 season were disrupted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Initially, we were supposed to be working on creating Komolo, which had been in the works since 2019. Instead, we chose to go and offer the children Biblibum, a new solo show, which came into being in March 2022. You’ll find the PDF recounting this mediation experience at the bottom of the page.

2018-2019 | That's My Sister!
The making of That’s My Sister!, a show intended for 4 to 7 year old children, benefitted from two cultural mediation phases. At the bottom of the page, you’ll find a summary of the Les empreintes réciproques project which allowed us to undertake creative work in collaboration with four groups of 3- to 5-year-old children from the Autour du monde daycare in the Parc-Extension neighbourhood.
The overarching themes of this work are managing emotions and the feeling of fraternity.
The second cultural mediation phase, The oldest of the youngest, took place during the following season, in collaboration with three classes from Barclay school (kindergarten, grades one and two). All together, these workshops provided a wealth of ideas and information that validated our intuitions and influenced the writing of the show until the final version, presented in March 2019.
