Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

  1. Overview
  2. Description
  3. Fact Sheet

Come and let your heart beat to the rhythm of Jack's tick tock.

Born with a frozen heart on the coldest day in Edinburgh's history, Jack owes his life to Madeleine, the strange midwife who thought to make him a clock as a heart. He mustn't ever touch the clock's hands, get angry and most of all, he must never-ever-ever fall in love! When he meets Miss Acacia, a sweet street singer, the hands of his clock start turning faster and lead him on a romantic quest across Europe.

Sneak preview excerpts were shown during last year's Festival, but now you can come and experience the complete touching adventure of Jack and Miss Acacia and get immersed in the dreamlike universe of Mathias Malzieu and Stéphane Berla.
