The Pencil Project
Devised by Martin Messier
& Jacques Poulin-Denis
A magical electroacoustic music performance for kids
The Pencil Project is a unique initiative that introduces children to an electroacoustic performance. On stage, two performers create a symphonic universe by manipulating the live sounds created by everyday objects found in a classroom. A pencil transforms into a magic wand, and a rubber elastic becomes a violin! The Pencil Project will engage, surprise and inspire audiences!
“Trust Youtheatre to gather a team capable of making a sometimes impenetrable form of music entirely palatable, for children and adults alike.”
