School Performance: Head à Tête Available: April 6 - 9, 2021

New Program Residency Performance English

Head à Tête is the story of two strangers who overcome the barriers of language and mistrust to find friendship. Set in a barren, cold and windy land that was once a beautiful garden, Head à Tête unfolds with the arrival of a strange cage-like object. As if triggered by the presence of life, a magical tree bearing “fruit” begins to grow. When two strangers, one French-speaking and one English-speaking, appear from opposite directions and discover the tree and the sanctuary it provides, a standoff begins. Frustration and conflict grow with each word spoken, but it is through the loss and re-birth of the tree that they find peace in each other’s company.
