G’zaagiin Maleńki – I Promise You a Forest

a Voyageurs Immobiles production
in partnership with Remai Modern

May 7 – 11, 2025

“G’zaagiin” means “I love you” in Anishinaabemowin. “Maleńki” means “little child” in Polish. This immersive, theatrical, music concert is a joyful introduction to live performance for the very young, and those with curious hearts. A non-verbal, sonic experience, using a drum, a cello, and melting ice to create sounds, textures, and poetic movement for young children to discover.

“We created a friendly show where children and their parents are an integral part of the adventure. With us, they ARE the forest. Together, we listen to each other, we respond to each other, at the level of each person’s experience. With you, we are the soundscape of this forest. We unfold a world alive with sounds, images and sensations, an imaginary space that gives no answers, no lessons, but opens up possibilities. Because that’s what it’s all about, when you decide to promise a forest to future generations!”
~ From an interview with the artists

Recommended ages 18 months – 5 years

Running time: approximately 1 hour
