AU-DELÀ DU VISUEL COLLECTIVE
Montreal based interdisciplinary artist Audrey-Anne Bouchard used her visual impairment as inspiration to develop an innovative artistic form, proposing a new sensorial experience of dance and theatre. Her first piece Camille is an immersive experience designed to engage all of the spectator’s senses but sight. Audience members are invited to enter the performance space, to sit at the centre of the set, as the story unfolds. Specifically designed for audience members living with visual impairments, the artist’s work is also accessible to all audiences.
The company Les Fabulateurs, founded in 2012 by Marc-André Berthold and Simon-Pierre Lambert, creates hybrid shows between theater and storytelling. Their stories are original and above all, their reflections focus on emotional issues specific to children. Their absurd humor allows them to build bridges between adulthood and childhood. The Legend of Goldbeard has won over audiences in more than 80 performances since 2019, and is the subject of an audiobook to extend the adventure at home.
MON PÈRE EST MORT
"I wanted to shed light on the devastating consequences toxic masculinity can have on both younger and older guys. I got inspired by my own experiences, those of the men who crossed my path, and the experiences of around 40 guys that I interviewed. I wrote this story because one day, some men were brave enough to share their life story with me, and it changed my own life. "
- Charles Fournier
COMPAGNIE DE CRÉATION
Nuages en pantalon – compagnie de création 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, the company founded in 2001 has created more than twenty shows, many of which have toured in the province of Quebec.
At the crossroads of several artistic disciplines, but mainly in theatre, Productions Onishka is an interdisciplinary artistic organization, which weaves bonds of sharing between indigenous peoples around the world while honoring them, their diversity and their resilience. Founded in 2011 by Émilie Monnet, Onishka creates and produces shows that promote original and meaningful artistic collaborations to offer a fresh look at the world in which we live. Onishka means 'wake up' in Anishnabemowin. In this spirit, they designate artistic creation as a catalyst for social transformation that allows us to question how the realities and struggles of Indigenous peoples are perceived.
