Twan discovers Ma crying in the forest. They decide to leave together to go to the apple valley that their parents have designated for them as a haven of peace.
There, the straw hat shooter won't be able to reach them, and maybe the moon will even show up there to shine again! But how can two six- and eight-year-olds find their way hidden by too many warpaths?
What if, from up there, between the stars and the rifle shots, descended an eagle tired of the chaos of adults to come and dry their tears and take them under his wing?
"Transmitting the love of theater to children…": press article 2018 (Tunisia)
Sensitive to the fate of children in times of conflict, Marie-Pierre Cattino wrote The Apple Valley as a reconquest of the human race, between dream and nightmare, with lucidity and extreme tenderness.
After seizing on this writing, Clément Peretjatko traveled alone and with a team of French, Croatian and Kosovars artists, to the puppet theaters of Kosovo, Albania, Serbia, Ukraine, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tunisia, Egypt and Czech Republic to develop this performance.
This show performed in four languages with performers of different nationalities
