Stories to give courage is the first creation of the company A Part of the Whole. Our desire is to put poetry, fantasy and dream in the heart of our lives.
This show for all kind of audiences was created to bring a vision of what is possible and encourage the spectator to turn his eyes to the beauty of the world. It consists of seven stories told by puppets, shadows and a human being. The characters are crazy enough to believe in their dreams, and so people around them no longer have any choice but to believe as well: a lonely man who builds a lighthouse in the desert despite the taunts of his entourage, a father who is trying to learn to fly to his daughter, a rabbi who has the power to grant wishes of other once a year, a young adventurer decided to discover the unknown island, an eagle that everyone takes for a chicken, a cow filled but worried about its future, a man who seeks the truth without realizing that he has already found it. All these stories tell us that our dreams are waiting for us to achieve.
Stories to give courage was created in October 2013 in a tiny stone cellar of the 10th arrondissement of Paris, without scenery nor lights. This show where speech stands alone to convince receives a very warm welcome from the public and begins to interest theaters. But to migrate to a real plateau, a new phase of work will start for our team: a creative residency for scenography and stage lights. This residence will allow us to achieve the film of our show, essential to any programming.
