“It is good to renew one's wonder — said the philosopher —.
Space travel has again made children of us all.”
Rad Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and science.”
Albert Einstein

COMETA is a solo for primary school children (6-10-year-old). An unexpected visitor invites us, through her curiosity and her discoveries, to look at our immediate surroundings with new eyes. COMETA is a galactic adventure to wonder at the force of gravity, the possibilities of movement and the power of empathy. At geometry, playfulness and the speed of light. The universe, imagination and interstellar travel. And most of all, it’s a party to celebrate that we have met each other!

Initially designed to be danced in primary school classrooms, COMETA will have its theater version ready in October 2021.
