They are three. They do not know one another but all three have received an invitation from Ogo to go away. They do not know Ogo but they long to travel. And so they wait. They wait for Ogo.

But Ogo never shows up and what starts as a long and boring wait becomes an opportunity for play and discovery.

Ogo is a tribute to the friendship and the imagination that are unleashed when we have nothing to do but wait. The show celebrates the creativity and imagination of the young spectator and is wonderfully accompanied by live music on the harmonica, melodia, kalimbola and xylophone.

“Ogo is exquisitely fresh and of a rare intelligence.” HuffPost Québec
