At the heart of the forest, a squirrel digs in the garbage and finds a camera on a tripod. It just takes a butterfly alighting inside the camera body for it to spring suddenly to life. A three-legged cyclops that is both a microscope and a telescope, Camera discovers with its new eye an environment in movement.
At the heart of the forest, we come across all kinds of creatures: a pilfering squirrel, an old ailing bear, a Grandmother of Nature full of wisdom and possibilities, butterflies, a young Doe with gentle eyes, an ant who travels by balloon, and baby birds…
3-Legged Tale is a story without words, a poetic reflection on the cycle of life, of time that passes and that changes us, on life which is in constant rebirth, like grass that grows again after a field fire or flowers that appear after the snow.
Founded in Montreal in 1973, Theatre de l’oeil is dedicated to the creation and performance of puppet shows.
