The Dumpster Ball

World Premiere • TILT Commission

Illustration • Ages 5 & up • 60 mins • In English

World renowned French author and illustrator Marc Boutavant—creator of Mouk, Edmond, and All Aboard, among many others—will release a new book published by Enchanted Lions Books just before the Festival. Dumpster Dog, through its charmingly awkward canine protagonist “Chien Pourri”, shows kids that accepting differences is a key to better understanding one another.

Commissioned for TILT 2019, the artist will lead a special event on Saturday, March 9. Families are invited to come to the French Cultural Services’ Gilded Age mansion wearing their quirkiest creative outfits made of scraps of trash for a not-so-formal dancing ball and live drawing experience!
