From November 12 to December 19, the Dutch Embassy in France, with the help of Dutch and French cultural institutions, will bring Montreuil to life with a vast cultural programme for young people to be experienced in several places in the city. Between literature, illustrations, cinema, theatre and dance, let yourself be surprised by an eclectic and abundant program by participating in "Your world, full of wonders".
Among the highlights, the company De Dansers will present two dance performances at the Théâtre municipal Berthelot Jean-Guerrin:
- On November 12 at 2:30 pm and 7 pm, with playful energy, in a spectacular acrobatic dance and dreamy music, De Dansers proposes Petites cuillères a show that speaks of freedom, serenity and courage (from 4 years).
- On 13 November at 3pm and 6pm, Shake Shake Shake is a lively concert that gradually turns into a dance performance. A group of musicians and dancers sing about paralysis and deliverance, the quest for heaven and the fall into the abyss (from 14 years).
For one month, from mid-November to mid-December, illustrations from the book Dans le jardin by Noëlle Smit will be pasted in large format on the windows of the Folies d'Encre bookshop in Montreuil. During the annual Salon du livre et de la presse jeunesse, the author will offer drawing demonstrations in the bookshop and sign her books.
On 24, 27 and 28 November, the cinema Le Méliès will host short films as well as two feature films Nous (Wij) by René Eller and Ma folle semaine avec Tess (Mijn bijzonder rare week met Tess) by Steven Wouterlood, starring Sonny van Utteren.
On Wednesday 24 November at the Bibliothèque Robert-Desnos and on Saturday 27 November at the Bibliothèque Daniel-Renoul at 3pm, Fleur van der Weel, author and illustrator of Une vie de chatons (published by La Partie, translation by Emmanuèle Sandron) will lead the workshop "Miao, miao".
On December 1, author and illustrator Noëlle Smit will lead two workshops, the first at 10 am at the Paul-Éluard Library and the second at 3 pm at the Colonel-Fabien Library. These workshops are intended for children aged 4 to 6.
On December 1st in the morning, the author Anna Woltz will be interviewed at the Salon du livre et de la presse jeunesse about her new book, Alaska (Bayard Jeunesse, translation Emmanuèle Sandron). Anna Woltz is one of the most renowned Dutch children's authors, acclaimed by both critics and readers. She is also the author of the book "Ma folle semaine avec Tess" (My crazy week with Tess), adapted to the cinema and presented on 28/11 at the Méliès.
From 1 to 6 December, between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., the TV channel of the Children's Book Fair (presenting books, authors and illustrators) will broadcast short videos every day about Anna Woltz, Marit Törnqvist, Fleur van der Weel, Noëlle Smit and Annie M.G. Schmidt en Fiep Westendorp (Jeannot and Jeannette - Jip en Janneke).
From 3 to 10 December, the Dutch Embassy is organising an exhibition at the Atelier Néerlandais in Paris on the theme of cyber-bullying, based on a recent comic strip by author Aimée de Jongh. This exhibition "outside the walls" illustrates the difficulties that young people can encounter on their path, which is not made of wonders. Aimée de Jongh, whose comic book Jours de Sable was the best-selling comic book in France for several weeks this summer, is the creator of the poster for "Ton monde, plein de merveilles".
On 4 December, the official exhibition of the Salon du livre et de la presse jeunesse "Nous! Team spirit". This year she will be presenting illustrations from L'Île du Bonheur (La joie de lire, translation by Maurice Lomré) by Marit Törnqvist.
Ready for the big trip? On December 4 and 5 at 11 am, 2 pm and 3 pm, Dutch artist Judith Nab will present a theatrical installation: she will transport you in her real city bus, cleverly and hyper-realistically brought to the scale of children, whose windows have been transformed into a video screen. Travellers embark in groups of 30 for a 37-minute trip around the world. To be seen at Place Jean Jaurès in Montreuil as well as in five different locations in Montreuil!
