Marilyn Daoust & Gabriel Léger-Savard
Le temps des fruits

A woman and a man, a nebula of portraits, and the death throes of civilisations. Standing on the timeline of history in full formal wear, our hosts gather information, attend to the vestiges that were not passed on to them, and reshape heroism. In this multidisciplinary work that plays with genders and their associated symbols, Marilyn and Gabriel explore archetypes as well as a desire for authenticity. How does one turn a form of sensitive militancy into a performance? How does one round up a community to get hold of immemorial knowledge on the verge of being forgotten?

Onstage: Marilyn Daoust, Gabriel Léger-Savard. Collaborators: Audrée Lewka, Gaspard Philippe, Robin P. Gould, Anne Le Beau, Catherine FP.

Ingrid Vallus
Le reste des vagues

In this last part of a trilogy, Ingrid explores the in-between. She pays attention to the passing of time, to those instants when everything can change – from peace to war, from hate to love. Often imperceptible and insidious, these slow mutations can lead to the biggest reversals. Using breath as an anchor, how can one come by these small invisible moments when everything is possible? On a narrow stage that encourages organic movement, the artist invites spectators to follow her on a stripped-down and intimate journey.

Onstage: Ingrid Vallus, AKIDO. Collaborators: Andrew Forster, Chi Long, James Proudfoot.
