What if the forest could speak to us? With Forêt, Nuit Corail invites you to enter a land of legends full of mischievous spirits. Grab a good pair of shoes and set off on an immersive walk to discover the secrets and wonders of the region’s woods. Take the time to observe and listen to what the trees, mushrooms, bushes and mosses are whispering to you, and maybe you will even be lucky enough to come across a few funny and endearing little creatures. Forêt is an ecological fable that opens the door to mysterious worlds and raises awareness of the spirit of the forest, its inhabitants, and its scents and colours. A sweet dream to be experienced with the family.
