Beaver Dreams is a tale about a family beavers living on a lake in the Laurentian mountains, Quebec. Be a part of their daily activities; eating wood, building dams, family feuds, dreaming. Also inhabiting the area, is a family of humans who experience a collective nightmare depicting the threat of development on their perfect nature paradise. Every summer, one chore must be done – break the beaver dam. An epic battle of construction and destruction. We share a world together; what if the beavers were thinking the same as us?
Featuring puppetry, clowning, storytelling, animation, and water on stage! You’ll literally get wet watching this show.
