Twinkle is both a show and an immersive, playful, and participative installation for young children from infants to three years old and the adults who are with them. Inspired by the vibrant and mythical imaginings of the musica universalis, this creation evokes our dreamed relationships with the sun and the moon, as well as the emotional passage from day to night, from night to day, from earth to sky and from sky to earth… With the audience assembled around an aerial bamboo structure, three artists make bodies and instruments vibrate. Together they weave a common space where the audience is invited to experience and embrace the universe of stars and planets that has been created.

"A show that provides a first discovery where toddlers can observe, feel, and act at the same time."
Founded in 2000 by Cécile Mont-Reynaud, the Compagnie Lunatic has produced a dozen creations that combine aerial acrobatics, music, and visual arts. Performed in diverse venues, these creations result from extensive research into the reciprocal echoes of body and space, movement, and architecture. While developing a unique body of work with and for young audiences since 2012, the Compagnie Lunatic has continued to bring poetic expression everywhere and for everyone, making it accessible for all places, all audiences, and all ages.
