In 2019 Pirouette celebrates its 10th anniversary. Ten years during which they have never stopped exploring the Family concept. And that's a good thing since Family is precisely our season's theme!
For the occasion, Pirouette will invest a resting area at Playtime Paris and present a new Screen Capture exhibition revisiting their Parent & Child interviews.
They asked a group of past participants to revisit their original interviews. With the children now in their teens, and the parents a little older they consider some new questions and reflect on their original answers. A joyous Parents-Child, Past-Present face-to-face with some familiar faces in the industry!

Extracts from original interviews…
Who is your favourite famous person?
(after a long pause…) Father Christmas, I like him because he brings lots of presents to me even the things that I don’t ask for, he still brings them (Marcelo 4 yrs, 2010)
What makes you angry?
Not having what I want to eat for dinner (Lola 6 yrs, 2010)
Extract from Sophie Demenge & Daughter Mae’s new Parent & Child interview
What do you feel when you read what you wrote 7 years ago?
I laughed. I was so innocent. I’ve changed so much. I have grown into myself and have been able to form my own opinions through all kinds if life experiences weather mundane, everyday little obstacles or victories or month long summer camps have shaped me. (Mae now 17 yrs, original interview 2010)
What are the main changes that happened in your life/ profession in the last (7 or 8) years?
I am calmer, more centered, more picky about where and how I spend my energy. I have a better, deeper understanding of what matters to me and what my kids need.
