Family programme

Bavela is a curious young cat whose dreams come into conflict with tradition! She embarks on a quest for the solution by visiting her past lives, drawing us into a wacky story where music and friendship are at the heart. This educational show offers laughter and discovery, while presenting music-lovers, young and old alike, with playful arrangements for marimba and cello spanning more than four centuries of music by Rameau, Piazzolla, Nina Simone and many others.

The story is accompanied by animated illustrations that will delight all. Accompanied by the dynamic duo Stick&Bow, this narrative experience will charm the whole family.
