Towards a revival

Posted on March 10th, 2014

The 2013-2014 season of the MOULIN À MUSIQUE is the perfect occasion to share with you a new and improved flavor. Our musical performances always blend with theatre, movement, and visual arts. We want children to enter a world where time is suspended, fleeting, impregnable, magnified, and so important to taste.

Our mission is to encourage, through musical manifestations, the encounter between the young public and music in a spirit of creation, discovery, and exchange. Sixteen creations, along with cultural mediations, hundreds of vibrant broadcasters and 1500 performances later, helped to maintain alive this extraordinary mission.

As soon as an opportunity or an invitation arises it brings us further. We knock at the door and suddenly that door opens. Like the butterfly, our journey is constantly changing and transforms itself; here as a performance that we have concocted as a challenge. In partnership with the Insectarium of Montreal, a visual concert will take place in winter 2014 for children from 8 to 10 years old. Such a metamorphosis!

In this moment of renewal, the MOULIN À MUSIQUE will launch its first compact disk. It will be moreover presented on stage. Gros Paul follows the tale of an insatiable character in this breathtaking and witty piece, played by a team of exceptional artists.

Next, we fly to Asia with Fiddlehead!, a wordless performance, but that expresses everything. New territory, new beginning!

It is the children’s “joie de vivre” and their curiosity that propels the MOULIN À MUSIQUE to lift its sails and set on a new adventure. We strive to share with them this mutation, a delight of the senses and one where everything is possible.

Thank you for your ongoing support,
