New play at Centaur tackles themes of life

Through games, storytelling, drawing, and the story of one sad little fish, young audiences will begin to understand how we celebrate life and say goodbye

Are you living? Are animals living? What about your teddy bear, or your toys, or your house?

As a part of the TD Saturday Morning Children’s Series, What is Living? welcomes children and their families to discover what it means to be alive. Through games, storytelling, drawing, and the story of one sad little fish, young audiences will begin to understand how we celebrate life and say goodbye.

They will also learn about important social and environmental issues through humour and a cabaret-style performance. The play is 50 minutes and will be presented in English. The show is directed, designed and presented by three female artists: Anne-Marie St-Louis, Juliane Choquette-Lelarge and Éléonore Brieuc.

What is living? Will be presented  at the Centaur Theatre on February 15 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $8 for children and $10 for adults and are available for purchase over the phone or in person. For tickets, call 514-288-3161.

The play is part of a series of events presenting local and touring artists on select Saturdays throughout the winter.
