Norman is a fairly ordinary 7 year old boy, but he likes to wear dresses. In the garden, the more he twirls, the more it flies, the more fun it is. One day, he is allowed to wear a dress to school... The school trips will then no longer be quite ordinary and will turn into a journey to hell... or not ?

 

A creation for young audiences, after the show PINK BOYS AND OLD LADIES (2019).

Norman is a fairly run-of-the-mill 7-year-old boy, but he likes to wear dresses. In the garden, the more he whirls, the more it flies, the more owl it is. One day, he receives the authorization to go to school in a robe… School trips will then no longer be quite ordinary and will turn into an abyssal descent in we do not know what and that is why we say a descent into hell, because in the hell box you can put everything.

Through the anecdote of clothing, NORMAN it's like normal, except for a letter joyfully questions the relationship to the norm, the acceptance of difference and the cultural codes of gender. Never didactic, even less moralising, the show favours humour, dance, wordplay and narration.
A colourful ode to the freedom to be who you are.

NORMAN it's normal, except for a letter is a creation for children and the whole family, according to the show PINK BOYS & OLD LADIES, rewritten by Marie Henry and directed by Clément Thirion.
