The Cicada and the ant is adapted from the original fable of the French writer Jean de La Fontaine. Choreographer Francine Châteauvert combined her own experiences growing up in the country, and presented the simple poetry of rural life and the mystery insect world for the kids and the audience. Land is the carrier of all things, the basis for the survival of mankind. Humans settle on land, build houses, plant, work, sing, and harvest. The work portrays the image of farm life from seed to harvest and also manifests the hardship and pleasure. It makes the audience feel like being in the countryside. And insects become children’s friends, playing together. The ballet also gives viewers living in the city opportunity to be close to the earth, to the land.
