Delphine and Marinette are back! Véronique Vella previously staged the characters in collaboration with Raphaëlle Saudinos, in two shows where they met the famous Wolf, then the Deer, legendary animals of the forest and symbols of transgression and freedom.

In this third part of their triptych devoted to the Contes du chat perché [Tales of the Perched Cat], the girls have grown up more and are old enough to do the shopping on their own. On their way back, they meet a dog, man’s best friend... In this world, animals have the art of speech, and our scruffy and gruff Blind Dog is a particularly good talker. He moves Delphine and Marinette with his sad tale: he agreed to take on his master’s blindness, but the mean master abandoned him as soon as he had recovered his sight. The girls firmly resist the Dog’s attempts to talk them into feeding him the round filet of veal he sniffs in their basket, however they offer to take him in, which their parents accept. The Cat soon becomes the Dog’s best friend, but as he is a touch jealous, he sometimes claws his mistresses. Feeling unloved after being admonished by the Dog, he offers to take on the latter’s blindness...
From one adventure to the next, the directors unfold a world on stage that speaks to us of the complexities of love, fidelity and free choice, of the lost illusions that allow us to grow. They are fond of a theatre where music and songs are naturally in tune with the dialogues and for this production are reunited with many collaborators from the first two parts, set in the house and then on its threshold. Today, Delphine and Marinette are out in the open air, in the farmyard with its path leading into the distance, between the Cat’s shelter in the granary and the fields, full of energy as they approach the cusp of their adult lives.
