You never knew you could do a theatre performance with a simple material - ROPE.

Inspired by artist Jean-Marie Hobet and a group of pre-school children and teachers, Bout à bout is a unique puppetry connecting life, arts and imagination for children.

"Bout à bout", meaning "End to end" - is a story full of poetry and light that connects imagination with life and arts. It is a matter of letting go of the parental rope and of going to the conquest of the city, of the friendships.

From ropes of various sizes, music and sounds, three invisible puppeteers give life to the initiatory journey of a little piece: fire lances, boas constrictor, means of transport or sumo preparing for battle, dog and cat, snake, octopus and fish ...

The movement of the "living ropes" creates vivid images of daily life and all forms of characters together with humor, family life and human relations on stage.

The Unusual creative process

The performance was created in collaboration with a pre-school. Together with the teachers, ideas and research were shared and they observed how kids move with and take over the material (colorful strings) to play out the situations which affected them.

Le Clan des Sponges then developed a show that not only tell stories about daily lives with a lot of fun but also help build the awareness of art for the young audience.

"I imagine the theatre as a crossing point between reality and fantasy: to be present as the doors open, as hosts of our house of waking dreams; to share, in a close and intimate way - the breathing of the audience, feel their thrills, hear the words escaping their lips; and to be captivated by their laughter and their tears."  - Martina Montefusco,  Founder of Le Clan des Songes
