SYNOPSIS

LÉNAÏQUE LA MAGNIFIQUE cries every day to water the dragon fruits growing in her peninsula orchard. At the Continental Market one day, she catches the eye of a young man, Brévalaire Spectaculaire — it’s love at first sight! They decide to see each other every Sunday and between each meeting they count the steps that separate them. But without Lénaïque’s tears, her trees begin to wither. To save her fruits, she begins to cry — so much so that her peninsula turns into an island. Thus begins her quest to reach her beloved… A marriage of folktale, improvisation, poetry and songs, Countries Shaped Like Stars is full of surprises. Joël Beddows offers both a playful and poetic show, while through games and interactions, actors Danielle Le Saux-Farmer and André Robillard invite us to witness the birth of new love and the joyous splash of change that it brings.
