The Cicada and the Ant is a choreographic work for young and old that casts a glance at the world of art and of agriculture. Largely influenced by Francine Châteauvert’s rural roots and upbringing and inspired by the renowned fable by Jean de La Fontaine, this work transports us to the heart of life, into the difficult and the beautiful of the ordinary.
The soil, a field, an empty space where anything is possible, where gradually humans settle, build, sow, work, sing and harvest. From the sowing of the seed to the harvest, the production paints a down to earth, poetic vision of the world of the artist and of the small farmer.
