Plot
James, a traveling penguin from the South Pole, and Vladimir, a funny bear from the North Pole, meet on the Arctic sea ice. They become friends, talk about their respective regions and observe the stars together, wondering why the night is so long at the poles of the Earth. Novice astronomers, they are trying to solve this mystery by reasoning and observation. Thanks to the rigor of James and the inventive genius of Vladimir, their scientific adventure leads them to build an observatory and then an improvised spaceship. During a trip around the Earth, extended to Mars and Saturn, they get their answer and discover that the planets have similarities but also differences.

Polaris is a playful story combining pedagogy and astonishing 3D effects. Addressing astronomical concepts such as the tilt of the Earth's axis, planetary types and ice in the solar system, the show also introduces key elements of the scientific method.

Plot
In order to increase his power, a tyrant asks a wise old man of his kingdom to give him the secret which would enable him to extend his power and domination. Despite his insistence, he can only elicit one answer from the wise old man: “Look at the sky and count the stars”. When he realizes the wise old man will not give him more clues, the tyrant follows his advice and starts counting the stars in the sky. Step by step, a relationship takes place between them which will change the tyrant’s quest for domination into a quest for knowledge…

The Blind Man with Starry Eyes is a lovely tale for young children. Introducing basic astronomical concepts such as night and day, rotation of the Earth, stars and the Sun, shooting stars and meteorites - the show is also a profound story about life, knowledge and our relationship to Nature.

Plot
Eugene Milkman, nicknamed Milky, is an old robot, a small but strong “man”, who has delivered milk for 800 years for the Galaktos company, throughout all the Galaxy. Starting his new tour, he takes Craig McIntosh, a young intern hardly gone out of school, to ensure his training is complete. Both take off for a journey through the Milky Way; Milky evokes its memories of his long career while Craig discovers brilliant cosmic landscapes. From stars to nebulae, this fantastic trip will even drive them up to the dreadful black hole hidden in the center of our Galaxy…

Galaktos is a funny road movie, evoking the shape and the content of the Milky Way. Using a crazy screenplay for children, the show includes a complete and realistic model of our Galaxy with its stars, clusters and nebulae.
