Earth, on a day not quite like the others: neglected and mistreated by careless humans, beautiful Achike, the spirit of our planet, falls ill.
She sneezes, is feverish… Each of her sneezes causes a natural disaster!
Frightened by all these disasters, a young boy named Nalou, decides to run away. He begins a long journey, punctuated by encounters with mysterious, wonderful … and quite frankly ridiculous characters! During his journey, Nalou will understand he doesn’t need to flee : he, the young boy, can heal Achike and restore harmony by taking care of the Earth.
Achiké the Earth has a cold gives a humorous and delicate point of view about the current environmental concerns. By transposing a Peruvian folk tale in modern society, the Cie Remue Ménage reactivates these mythologies and gives children space to think about our planet, in this engaging, but never moralizing show.
