It’s late. Time to go to bed! But sleep is the last thing on our minds…
The bed is uncomfortable, the pillow has a mind of its own, the blanket is too short, our pyjamas have decided to go for a run and the comforter chooses tonight of all nights to learn how to fly! When we don’t want to sleep, well, we’re just not going to! Good night! appeals to children’s imagination. It encourages their creativity by showing them that it is possible to communicate feelings and ideas with just a few simple objects and lots of imagination. Children are delighted to discover how everyday objects can become characters with hilarious personalities.
Puzzle Theatre was founded in Bulgaria and moved to Montréal in 2004. It has its own unique style that draws on many different theatre genres, including actor, object and puppet theatre. It built its reputation through its colourful combination of styles and the broad range of its means of expression. It allows the audience free rein to interpret the unspoken, to make their own associations between ideas and to feel what is not explicitly stated. Puzzle Theatre has performed across Canada, in Europe and in Asia. Good night! is their latest work.
