POMME is an apple and sighs.
POMME would like to become a man.

Things don’t start off well.
POMME falls on his nose.
POMME rolls, he would like to walk.
POMME rolls, he would like to fly.
POMME rolls, he would like to swim…

To be something else… differently…

In the end, POMME will choose to be an apple… just an apple.

Inspired by haikus written in Quebec and in France, we imagined a friendly road movie where puppet movement and play are essential.  The show is simple, sensitive and close to emotion.  Brought to you with wit and humor, POMME is a puppet poem to savor as a family.
