Montreal's acclaimed theater company explores the wonder of the places we inhabit in "Where I Live," a wildly imaginative production aimed at very young audiences. Characters Téqui and Téoù invite audience members to examine big questions about their place in the world— from their own body to their family, their community, and finally to the planet we share. Props and scenic elements used in this production are easily relatable to children: cardboard and wood blocks form houses, rags become puppets and flashlights are used to highlight items and create shadow games.

Ages: 18 mos.–4 years. Fee: $9 with museum admission ($7 LICM members), $12 theater only.
