Les Moutons is an all-ages show about how sheep spend their time. Created by the Toronto-based dance-theater group, CORPUS, this delightful entertainment merges reality with fantasy through a captivating and wordless live installation that recreates a bucolic country scene. Audiences are invited to travel to a strange and often hilarious universe: a carefully studied, surrealistic overview of sheep behavior. The story features Julie, Marie-Louise, Bernadette and César--three healthy ewes and a young ram. Routine activities, including shearing, feeding, milking and many more, are depicted in a magical performance that twists reality in surprising ways.
More than 400 performances world-wide in 25 countries.
