The play, Puff and faraway friends, is a heart-warming story about acceptance, friendship and differences between us, told from the perspective of three lovable dogs. The viewer can ponder on the concept of difference, and what it means to us. Dance, motion and gestures are all different in various cultures, but when we open our hearts and minds to look at each other, we realise that there are more similarities than differences between us. To look at the world with a child-like innocence is something that we should all learn from Puff. All the voices and sounds are done by the theatre interpreter Karoliina Franck. The visual, vibrant and energetic world of Puff and faraway friends invites us all to come and join in the fun!

The Tiger Prince is an exclusive sign language reading of Chen Jiang Hong children's book, edited by l'Ecole des Loisirs. While the pages of the book will be be projected on a screen, a deaf actor of the collective will explain, exclusively in sign language, the story of the young Wen, inspired by a Chinese legend. The sign language used will be largely visual and iconic and will give a different approach to the narrative version so as to embody the various characters by a single actor. Before this reading the actor will provide some key signs thanks to an artistic and educational toolbox filled with elements that the children will also be able to handle.
