THE EVENING | Catherine Makereel

Little boy in a dress, "Norman" questions the norm
26/11/2021

"Norman" is a nugget for young audiences. Trajectory of a little boy who has lived through hell since going to school in a dress, the play continues with encounters with the children, around the “he”, the “she” and the “iel”.

THE JDE | Marie-Agnes Cantinaux

A show that highlights the freedom to be who we are.
02/12/2021

The show is colourful, dancing, made up of humor and important questions: what's the difference? And what is it different from? [...] At the exit, the children continue to speak. One of them launches a "thank you". The discussion could continue... This is also the opportunity (chance) offered by Norman!

What if Norman's skirt was normal?
06/04/2022 - Young Audience Focus at the Théâtre des Doms

The auditorium of the Théâtre des Doms in Avignon is delirious, carried away by the tragicomic approach of the Kosmocompany which, in this disco parable of normality, tackles the question of gender and plays with codes with a caustic humor, punctuated by changes wigs and all those disguises that the theater allows.

Norman, this boy in a pink skirt on the way to school
04/06/2022

Norman is like normal, except for one letter, gives priority to the voice of the child [...] and questions the norm, with a false lightness, in a pop, tonic, inventive and offbeat staging by Clément Thirion , in line with the repetitive, uninhibited and distanced writing of Marie Henry.
