The World Premiere of Two-Part Inventions!
Saturday, May 18 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 1:30 pm, repeating until Monday, May 20, 2019
Harbourfront hosts the world premiere of Two-Part Inventions (Les Inventions à Deux Voix), an emotional journey of discovery between two young neighbours for children aged four and up!
Performed in English and French, Two-Part Inventions (Les Inventions à deux voix) from Montreal’s Les Deux Mondes makes its world premiere at Toronto’s international children’s festival, JUNIOR.
An encounter between a girl and a boy in their apartment building leads to a journey of personal discovery. Alone in an imaginary world far away from adults, they play-act their way through the range of emotions affecting their lives – from passion to boredom to their fear of the unknown. What if “elsewhere” was just behind the door? A touching production that children won’t forget.
Created for children and youth ages four to 14 and their families, JUNIOR (May 18 – 24, 2019) challenges young people to explore new perspectives and ask enlightening questions in a live setting. Featuring world, North American and Canadian premieres, the festival includes an extensive lineup of free and ticketed programming encompassing theatre, live concerts, dance, puppetry, circus, storytelling, arts and crafts and more, from leading family entertainers and artists from across Canada and around the world.
Tickets can be purchased at harbourfrontcentre.com/junior, in person or by calling the Harbourfront Centre Box Office at 416-973-4000.
