soul mates Puppet Trilogy without words Poetical performanceIllustrated book Inhabited Installation *** *** *** For all audiences
Soul mates is an ode to childhood. Both a visual and a performing artwork, this creation explores the irrepressible connection between human nature and nature in the wild. An alliance that takes shape at the heart of the forest, within the body and the senses of the Child. In these times of great inner emptiness and information overload, Magali Chouinard perseveres in her commitment to silence, beauty, and wonder with this allegory about childhood. Nature has given every Child the formidable ability to live in the moment, to play, to connect with the Living and with something greater than the Self. Soul mates is a poetical reflection on joy and on the profound connection to the Wild Child that lives somewhere within every one of us. TRANSLATION: Denise Babin @ denisebabin.com
