“Presence / Absence” Project 2020

This federating project for the year 2020, around the production “Là… Pas Là!“, mobilised children, parents and early childhood professionals around the theme of the show, presence/absence, echoing this delicate moment when the child and the adult cross their path to travel together the road of a necessary separation.

Due to the COVID-19 health restrictions, the workshop dates were postponed to mid-October 2020 to early January 2021 in cooperation with the various partners. The second lockdown led to the cancellation and postponement of some dates to the beginning of the 2021 school year.

18 workshops led by Émilie Lambert and Joseph Bourillon were held around movements/shadows, sounds, graphic expression and objects in 4 early childhood organisations (the Pierrot et Colombine and Raymonde Le Texier nurseries, the Accueil Familial l’Île aux Enfants, and the LAEP) in Villiers-le-Bel.

A very beautiful and interesting observation came out of the participation, attitude and interactions between the children and the artists. Thank you for this exceptional moment that nourishes us day by day and gives us a breath of fresh air and creative ideas in our daily work with children.
