at The Assembly Hall Theatre

Returning to WeeFestival after a sold-out run in 2018 and recent performances at Soulpepper’s Family Festival, TWEET TWEET! is a feast for the eyes and ears. Two little birds asleep in their nests high in a magical tree awake and discover each other and a wondrous world around them. An aerial arts and circus creation for young children performed in an intimate forest-like setting. (Without language.)

En francais:
TWEET TWEET! est un véritable festin pour les yeux et les oreilles. Deux petits oiseaux se réveillent de leur sommeil à la cime d’un arbre magique, et se découvrent l’un l’autre ainsi que le monde merveilleux qui les entoure. Cette création pour les arts aériens et les arts du cirque est conçue dans un cadre forestier intime qui envoutera les enfants. (Sans langage.)

About Femmes de Feu

Femmes du Feu is a project operating company founded in 2003. Since 2007, Femmes du Feu have been actively creating and presenting aerial circus works, researching innovative ways to combine their contemporary dance and choreographic backgrounds with their aerial circus skills. This has included exploring apparatuses such as a bungee in Impossibility (2007), silks in Dive (2009) and trapeze in Tiffany (2010). More recently, Femmes du Feu has invented apparatuses specific to their artistic needs such as the anchor, rope or pole as in The Plank (2010). Femmes du Feu have presented their work at various events including At The Wrecking Ball (2007), The Toronto International Circus Festival (2008), and Hysteria Festival (2009), The London/ Toronto/ Winnipeg Fringe Festivals (2009 & 2010).
