Description Petit Câlin is like an embrace where you can both struggle and rest, laugh and cry, joke and be serious, where there is space for longing and to be comforted.

The idea and the name of the work are based on the French phrase "petit câlin", which means embracing a newborn baby, its first hug. Movement in a tightly controlled space, the human voice, and lightning transport the audience from one state of emotion to the next.
