Madame Train is France's leading specialist in fairy tales. She knows 998 like the back of her hand. A very realistic, authoritarian and unimaginative personality, she holds a conference on tales, assisted by Mademoiselle Carton, a joyful, mischievous and clumsy personality in charge of illustrating the
his colleague's words thanks to a multitude of objects. Soon, unforeseen events will jeopardize the course of his presentation and give rise to new versions
the Ugly Duckling, Hansel and Gretel and Snow White.
Revisiting these famous tales from our childhood, the Compagnie du Détour deciphers their morals and questions their messages, in the light of our times.
Without ever distorting their words, she tackles with joyful energy what makes the essence of these secular stories: the acceptance of differences,
initiation, emancipation. Offering detours on the side of magic, playing with codes, We tell you stories is aimed at children's ability to imagine,
to escape, to think for themselves… An irresistible show of fun to watch as a family!
