France - Teatro Gioco Vita at La Villette in Paris

From May 9th to 12th, “Me and Nothing” is on stage within the Biennale Internationale des Arts de la Marionnette and in the “Little Villette” season

Me and Nothing, based on Kitty Crowther's work, is the story of a little girl who, after the loss of her mother, creates an imaginary friend.

Through a wise and poetic language, the story tells how weakness and fragility can be transformed into strength and that something precious can even come from absence.

Among his ‘considerations on the text and the staging’, director Fabrizio Montecchi says to be convinced that «children’s theatre can and should be committed to telling those stories and speaking those words which lead a child to a better understanding of himself and others and release what would otherwise, during a very delicate growing up period, remain suffocated and unvoiced».
And he underlines that «contemporary children’s literature is able to show us a world where the relationship between the child and the adult, within or outside the family, is evolving continuously».

The great delicacy and honesty Kitty Crowther uses addressing children are the register Teatro Gioco Vita too wanted to follow.

The French version of Me and Nothing is on stage at La Villette from the 9th to the 12th of May within the Biennale Internationale des Arts de la Marionnette.

The show is also part of the bill “Little Villette”, dedicated to schools and families: it is the third time Teatro Gioco Vita is hosted in the prestigious Parisian cultural centre season, that has previously programmed Circoluna and Moun.
