Sons… Jardins Secrets” is part of the dynamics of a theatrical writing at the intersection of expressive forms and aesthetic issues associating music, painting and poetry (writing and theatre) for a dramaturgy of sensations as close as possible to the audiences concerned (children and adults).

Laurent Dupont: “I wanted to share with children and adults the paths on which this new creation takes us in the implementation of nomadic workcamps to open up to the often unknown territories of shared gardens, to venture into these lands of origin where the gardens of intimacy flourish, places of the founding emotions of each being… How can we cultivate this garden in the making that is childhood?

A stroller welcomes the visitors, arranged around the enclosure. He introduces his story with a song, in the magic of the phonemes and sound images that will fill the story. He then puts on his gardener’s apron to shape his landscapes on his stage carpet, which he embellishes with materials and silk squares, carried away in an intimate dialogue with his little seeds, promises of life.
