(CS) After a successful 2011 season, CarréRotondes theatre venue Traffo is gearing up for an eventful 2012 programme starting September.
One of the venue's strengths is its programme aimed at young audiences. While many plays are performed in either German or French, there is also a large selection of performance-based pieces, as well as dance, which is accessible for audiences of all languages.
- White, brought to Luxembourg by Scotland's Catherine Wheels Theatre Company. For children aged two to four it sees the white world of Cotton and Wrinkle turned upside down through a splash of colour.
- In Respire two artists test the boundaries of gravity in their performance art piece aimed at audiences aged six or over.
- Taking juggling to the next level, Gandini Juggling from London present Smashed, bringing to the stage nine artists, 80 apples and a lot humour.
- Adios tells the story of an old couple, with a sick husband cared for lovingly by his wife. Through puppetry the story explores love, loss and memory in a touching way for children aged eight or over.
- Variations S is a re-imagining of the 1913 Sacre du Printemps, which caused a scandal at its premiere. With music of Strawinsky, this fresh production looks at all the confusion of first love for teenagers aged 12 and over.
The full programme is available on the CarréRotondes website.
