« Collective work is at the core of the company’s process. Under the artistic direction of Jean-Philippe Joubert, each creator, while preserving their specialization, participates in the writing and creation of the show. The artistic disciplines influence one another and all aspects of the performance are developed simultaneously. »

Nuages en pantalon - compagnie de création was founded in Quebec City in 2001 by four graduating artists from the Conservatoire d’art dramatique de Québec.

The company brings together artists from different backgrounds, exploring a subject, in order to create an original theatre for audiences of all ages. Under the artistic direction of Jean-Philippe Joubert, who favours a group research approach for productions, each artist takes part in the writing, staging, set design and performance. The artistic medium influences each other and all aspects of the production develop simultaneously.

To this day, the company has created twenty shows in Quebec City. It has visited many cities in the province of Quebec, in Canada and in France.

Over 875 performances have been played to nearly 145,000 audience members, and the journey continues.

*THIS PLAY IS AVAILABLE IN FRENCH ONLY*

From the invention of the printing press to digital algorithms today, the dissemination of information has mixed with fiction. But what makes it easier for us to buy into an invented story than the complex reality? What if it was because fiction is everywhere and infiltrates insidiously into the most intimate spheres of our lives ?

 

In a free and playful form, La fin de fiction explores the interaction of true and false through a series of episodes that take you on a journey through time, from Gutenberg to Mark Zuckerberg, through Buffalo Bill and the magic of Disney, the counter-culture of hippies and Silicon Valley. Nuages en pantalon - compagnie de création and La Catapulte take an historical look on our current world, where it is increasingly difficult to distinguish the reality of fiction, while we bathe daily in a digital world that transforms reality.

 

By adopting the form of an essay, the creative team addresses the fundamental nature of the human being — that is to believe — in a humorous show.

A brilliant theatrical exercise, really! [...]

It's funny, it's finely embroidered.
