The film-concert Pirates and Mermaids, Oysters and Whales takes the audience on a journey to the depths of the oceans, packed with the magic of animated cinema. This show is composed of several short animated films set to music in real time by countless instruments, from the most classical to the most futuristic. The stories, capable of captivating the audience until the end, are full of impressive characters, such as a fisherman who turned out to be a fish, or a little walnut-shell boat that goes around the world. The films are made by directors of various nationalities, connected to great schools of animation of the world circuit, such as The Animation Workshop, Supinfocom and La Poudrière. Recreating the classic film-concert environment, Pirates and Mermaids, Oysters and Whales is a true demonstration of how traditional techniques are still the basis for creating incredible stories and visual effects.
