Petit / Gestural Theatre and cirque /
A show for the whole family

Petit is a show which purpose is make people find their self. It contains a little world full of dreams, carpets and trunks; and this world throughout the show is opening windows and throwing a ball, with the purpose to tell us: It is time to be children!, It is time for play!.

Considering that a hug cannot be replaced by anything, and that a laugh or a dream cannot be translated, Petit invokes subjective language and gestures, making us remember the value of simplicity. The absence of words is a choice. Transcending the idea of culture and language barriers, the show inquires into the human, where the souls silence is able of acting. Petit suggest a dream and sensitive language, as a source of gestures, grimaces and sounds. It uses a language that attempts to be gesture, action and transformation. Just as a tickle evoking laughter and crying.

Petit is a show, a show that is a life, a life that even being simple and small, it changes, flees and transforms.
