Humans… they’re too complicated! So Miss Mouche practices flying and learns the language of
birds. Poetic, touching and comical, this solo combines storytelling, projections, music and zany
dances. Dynamic projections of fanciful birds from Buffon’s encyclopedia from the 18th
century bring forward Les Filles électriques’ signature aesthetic, a blend of vintage and
D. Kimm, artist-of-all-trades, has created an endearing character with a clownish touch. It’s
hard not to fall in love with Miss Mouche and her penchant for kung fu and hip-hop. Be ready for
your imagination to take off with Miss Mouche’s wacky tales and giant bird projections straight out
of Buffon’s 18th-century encyclopedia.
The artist had the opportunity to take part in creation residencies at the Salle Albert-Dumochel
in Valleyfield (Valspec), at the Maison de la culture du Plateau-Mont-Royal and at the Maison de la
culture Parc-Extension. An initial version of the show was presented at the Les Coups de Théâtre
(2016) and Petits Bonheurs (2017) festivals. The finalized version was a resounding success when it
was presented in 2018 at the National Arts Centre’s French Theatre in Ottawa.
The show lasts 45 minutes and is geared towards families, particularly children ages 4 to 9
(kindergarten & primary school, 1st to 4th year). It can be presented in
small to medium-sized venues.
