Cultural mediation

Theatre boxes

« I've created a theatre box for children with materials and tools for hands-on creativity. I offer them a playground where they can follow their creative nature. »

– Nathalie Côté


Theatre boxes were created by Nathalie Côté to bring art directly into children’s homes!

Alone or with their family, kids create characters and small stages using the materials carefully provided in the box. They can then invent a story inspired by these settings and characters, a story that can be written or simply told, in theatrical and/or puppet mode! Théâtre du Gros Mécano has offered these boxes as a philanthropic gift to two Quebec City community organizations in 2020 and 2021.
