KIDS 6-12

The Pencil Project

Devised by Martin Messier 

& Jacques Poulin-Denis

ABOUT

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!
