5 YEARS OLD AND UP
« 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. »
André Laliberté, artistic director
by Larry Tremblay
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... His friend Gina takes him on a strange adventure, filled with extraterrestrial creatures made of candy that swallow pills instead of going to school and know everything and anything anyone needs to know. Marco has to draw a picture for a school project, but since he doesn’t have much artistic talent, Gina gives him a “drawing pill”. That’s when a Marco bleu alter ego appears and introduces our young hero to his colourful world and somewhat eccentric family. When the boy returns from this fantastical adventure, he understands that life on earth can be extraordinary... even with a baby sister!
“Blue Marco gets children to think philosophically about their lives, imagining a different way of living,” says Larry Tremblay. “On Marco bleu’s planet, there are only two days in a week: Saturday and Sunday. The show will allow children to reflect on time and their relation to it: why are there seven days in a week? Can being aware of other perspectives and learning about people who live differently help us be more tolerant?”
