Stories keep moving, just as human beings and despite our differences we often have stories in common.

The Monkey and the Crocodile

With Abbi Patrix (storytelling) and Linda Edsjö (percussions)

In this funny, sharp set of fables, animals take on human roles — to reveal human behavior in all its folly.
The source for these stories is the Panchatantra, a Sanskrit work which influenced both Aesop and La Fontaine — so these are tales with a universal dimension.
Abbi Patrix uses the power of speech to weave an inescapable net of words.... beware the stories and beware the storyteller!

> Thursday 28th April at 6 pm
> LaMaison Pour Tous
23 rue du Béarn 94550 Chevilly-Larue
> Free admission
> Reservations recommended : +33 1 46 75 93 22
