MARIE MOUGEOLLE | QUAND JE SERAIS GRANDE JE SERAIS (GUITARISTE DE) MICHEAL JACKSON + DOUSSE NUIT / HOLEY NIGHT | AUDRÉE LEWKA ET LES LEWSKI
Information on the activity
October 24, 2019 to October 27, 2019
A purring fire, twinkling lights, a plate of cookies, a glass of milk. The table is set for the arrival of a mythical guest. But is it really an invitation or more of an invasion? The big red, white-bearded guy kisses our mother and leaves with the cookies. Three kiddos are called in to wrestle this childhood monument, a paternalist incarnation of docile consumerism. He’s an insidious creature, a chimera with many faces whose icy howls echo throughout the Arctic plains: HO HO HO! But, as Nietzsche wrote, “careful while fighting monsters, lest you become one.”
Onstage: Guillaume Danielewski, David Emmanuel Jauniaux, Victor Naudet. Collaborateurs / Collaborators: Jessica Collin Boucher, William Couture, Pierre-Luc Lapointe, Emmalie Ruest, Olivier Landry-Gagnon.
In this solo, Marie takes hold of Michael Jackson’s world to fuel her own work, paying particular attention to his hybrid practice as a musician-dancer with an extravagant stage presence. In a lunar landscape shaped by sound, she transforms into a moving creature, revealing the singer’s potential for metamorphosis. The duplicity of his character, lying somewhere between icon and monstrosity, brings her to navigate her own complexity. This artistic composition is dreamy and a little bit rock, at once intimate and striking.
Onstage: Marie Mougeolle, Mathieu Mougeolle. Collaborateurs / Collaborators: Helen Simard, Marijoe Foucher, Hugo Dalphond, Enora Rivière, Camille Mougeolle, Cyril Journet.
