Everybody thinks Arthur is different. He’s 15 years old, crazy about music, and can speak 5 languages. However hard he tries to blend in, he fails big time to tell how he feels. Being a teenager is 10 times harder for Arthur. One day, a lovely transfer student walks in. He’s never had the same feeling for a girl before…Will this be a chance for him to connect with the world? Tendres fragments de Cornelia Sno is a monodrama depicting an Asperger’s teen’s meticulous observation of other people and how he struggles with the feeling of strangeness.

Directed by Jean-François Auguste, written by Loo Hui Phang, and starring talented Taiwanese actor TSENG Chih-wei, the thought-provoking play redefines “distinctiveness” and led the audience to explore the inner world of an Asperger’s teen.

Drôle et sensible, le spectacle amène les jeunes spectateurs à la tolérance en leur permettant de comprendre de l'intérieur. - PARIS MÔMES
