Prize of the Minister of Culture Rencontre Théâtre jeune public d'Huy 2018

We come from all up there to the north.

Where there is ice, wind and sand.

The wind cools us and the sand protects us.

We make sand into walls, ramparts. It prevents the sea from devouring our homes.

We are going to tell you the story of our grandfather.

He was born a long time ago, in an ice cube.

One day he met the king of nature, a bear who lived under the sand.

He called him "the Kimik".



Blizzard is an almost wordless tale inspired by the Far North and Inuit culture. Three manipulators tell us about a wandering, the wandering of a puppet in shifting, unstable landscapes. The collective Une Tribu invents here a form in perpetual imbalance that invites contemplation and reflection on the relationship between man and wild nature.

Fiche technique

Dossier de présentation



"Intended for everyone from the age of 7, this Blizzard also summons" rag "puppets manipulated by several, for a disturbing effect of realism in movements and postures (...)

 The Blizzard fable traces an initial provocation, a fight, a loss, a revenge and then a reconciliation. It ultimately gives a way forward for man who has monopolized all natural resources to the detriment of other creatures. Our ancestor then decided to live in harmony with the Kimik. Strange and poetic, rough and gentle at the same time, Blizzard won the Minister of Culture Prize when it premiered this summer at the Rencontres de Théâtre Jeune Public in Huy. He deserved it. "
