AND UP

ligne h240« As Larry Tremblay’s first encounter with our company’s universe, Marco Bleu is for us an opportunity to benefit from Martine Beaulne’s vision for a third time. As long-time collaborators, Larry and Martine will for sure bring a super galactic twist to the story. »

Blue Marco

by Larry Tremblay

 

PRESENTATION

Marco’s life has been turned upside down with the arrival of his baby sister. His mom is so tired, and his father is overwhelmed...

Marco and his friend Gina invent whimsical stories, just for fun. Stories about an alien from a strange planet where children don’t have to go to school, where there are only two days in a week, and where life just seems to be so much more exciting than it is down here on Earth!

Then, one night, an entirely blue alien appears in Marco’s room and takes the little boy to his fantastical world. When the boy returns from this adventure, he understands that life on Earth can be extraordinary... even with a baby sister!

Blue Marco encourages children to think philosophically about life and to imagine ways they could live their own life differently. The show is also an expression of how imagination can help us face new challenges/the inevitable challenges we will face in life.”

Dad
He is Marco’s dad, always very busy with Maria-Helena because mom is very tired.

       


Mom

She is Marco’s mom, who also gave birth to Maria-Helena, his baby sister. She is very tired, but also quite kind. 

 


Baby Maria-Helena
She is a newborn baby girl. Actually, she’s barely born because she’s so very new. Marco thinks that her face looks like a wrinkled cabbage.
