To most music lovers, jazz, hip hop, funk, and classical are musical genres, but to Black Violin, two classically trained violinists and their DJ, they’re nothing but ingredients. Combining a daunting array of musical styles and influences to produce a signature sound that is not quite maestro, not quite emcee, this group is redefining the music world-one string at a time. With influences ranging from Bach to Beyoncé, Black Violin breaks all the rules, blending the classical with the modern to create something students can both relate to and be inspired by.

Following the internationally acclaimed Alice in Wonderland, Théâtre Tout à Trac revisits in its unique way Collodi’s tale about the most famous puppet: Pinocchio. Born out of a talking piece of wood carved by the old Geppetto, the rebellious, cheeky and careless puppet Pinocchio discovers the meaning of growing up through a thousand trials. To become a real boy, he will have to face Mangiafuoco, the terrible Puppet Theatre Director, suffer the malice of Mr. Fox and his sidekick, the Cat, escape from Toyland and save his father from the belly of the giant fish! Pinocchio from Théâtre Tout à Trac is another amazing journey to the heart of childhood, dreams and imagination.
