1.2.3. les pieds dans l’eau, touring during the summers of 2012 and 2013, was created on the shores of the St. Lawrence river in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. Inspired by the river and geese, Chantal Caron offers a complete work for 3 male interpreters, 2 female interpreters and 6 emerging dancers, waiting to be danced on the infinity of other horizons.

The choreographic frame is an initiatory journey to the outer reaches of childhood, exploring the metaphorical universe of the original game. The dancers touch on the games of pretending and make believe, play around reinventing the world; they become fluvial creatures, supernatural beings and wild geese.
