Alley theater for families ages 8 and up

It’s the last day of summer and time is running out. Today marks the end of childhood, for tomorrow Victor enters high school. It’s Ragnarök.

He’s torn between fear and the opportunity to be a new Victor. Nobody knows him there. He’s nobody’s friend, neighbor or brother. He can be whoever he wants to be. But he could also get lost, not find the door to his math class, forget the code to his lock, be mocked or labeled… To help him, Sam suggests one last game: “just like when we were kids”.

Victor is the sequel to the play Amarelinha. Two years later in the fiction, the show explores questions of identity, peer acceptance, grief, and courage. It’s a play that expresses itself through the playfulness we associate with childhood, and it tackles issues that carry us all the way through to adulthood.

A gift to humanity! Seriously, it feels great! Such a well-balanced show! Humble and dedicated! Funny and sad! Mocking and playful. Brimming with imagination and searing with reality! A treat for the imagination of both young and old! Bravo to La marche du crabe.

We recognize Simon's aesthetic: it's beautiful, it's funny, and we cry at the end.
