Audiences are encouraged to mark their calendars for a captivating experience scheduled for Saturday, September 30, 2023, between 1:00 PM and 4:30 PM at Jarry Park. This event extends an invitation of free admission, granted with a ticket, providing attendees with the opportunity to immerse themselves in a world where fiction and reality seamlessly coexist.
Imagine a world where fiction comes alive, where the boundaries between make-believe and the tangible blur. Les Kakous, two captivating inhabited puppet characters, beckon you into such a world. Inspired by a fictitious biodiversity, these remarkable beings will transport you on an unforgettable journey.
A Fictional Biodiversity Comes to Life
Les Kakous, the stars of the show, are two enchanting puppet characters who defy convention. Perched on stilts, they embody the essence of a fictional biodiversity. These creatures hail from the depths of giant underground cavities, their natural habitat. However, their world is suddenly upended by an unforeseen ecological shift.
Forced into the Unknown
The tale begins with Les Kakous being thrust out of their unfathomable abode, compelling them to venture into uncharted territories. Some of these are urban landscapes, while others are arid expanses. The question that hangs in the air is, “What awaits them on this daring expedition?” Will they share the tragic fate of their distant relative, the Dodo bird?
A Journey of Uncertainty and Improbability
Park-Exers are urged to prepare to step into the unknown as they accompany Les Kakous on this unprecedented journey and to witness the collision of their fantastical existence with our everyday reality. The emotions, challenges, and triumphs of these two giant bipeds as they navigate a world entirely foreign to them await the audience’s experience.
The magic of Les Kakous is brought to life through the visionary minds behind the scenes:
