A sensory experience for early childhood. 

As performers and beautiful objects move around, scatter and connect, children are slowly drawn into the space, observing, reflecting, touching or interacting in their own individual way. They are all inhabitants of this cosmos and part of a fragile balance.

Univers is a poetic sensory experience based on stunning visual imagery and live music. A space for very young children to explore how small insignificant things can have unexpected outcomes. A space to share our vulnerability, adapt to new situations and connect with each other. A unique and unrepeatable experience that is built and rebuilt over and over again.

"The Univers of Engruna Teatre is an ode to cultural reconciliation. Eyes wide-open, children and parents celebrate their first theatrical immersion."
