  Maya Le Roux,

With this adaptation, Maya Le Roux, guitarist and composer,  makes her first foray outside the purely musical register. Her music, orchestrated by  Cyrill Azzam is punctuated with sentisivity and finesse by the magnificent voices of Daisy Auvrey, Christine Python, Patrice Maye, Francesco Saraceno,  Steeve Dunkel and Cyrill Azzam.

 

The Story

It concerns a little boy, Nick who is bored despite being endowed with some extraordinary gifts.
His heart is set on a single desire: to set off on a voyage of discovery of the World and to find the Land of Far Horizons and its mysterious treasures.

Actress and director, Francine Haskell, who has lived in New York for over 40 years, engineered the fusion between actress. Ariane Le Roux’s work on stage and that of the Rumanian puppeteer Liviu Berehoi, already well known to the Geneva public.
