Quijote (2017)

 

Free adaptation of the Miguel de Cervantes novel : "The Ingenious Nobleman Don Quijote of La Mancha"

 

Paper puppetry and shadow theatre

Ages 8 and up

 

In a world – made of paper – that is both ruthless and fragile, Quijote and Sancho are looking for adventure. Stepping in are the vivid and larger-than-life imagination of the frail knight as well as shadow theatre! But the beliefs of Quijote are too powerful. Wherever he turns, everyone thinks he is crazy and people make fun of him. Following a clown duo that seeks both friendship and glory, the audience embarks on an epic that asks profound questions about our desires.

The topics raised by Cervantes more than 400 years ago are still relevant today, in the age of social media. Like Quijote who seeks glory by pretending to be a knight, don't we often seek to perfect our virtual identity, even if it means altering it to gain prestige? Where is the limit between ambition and illusion? Between dream and madness?

With its curious paper characters and ingenious shadow theater, Quijote continues to fascinate young and old alike throughout Quebec!

Off the Beaten Path (2012)

 

Based on the Russian folktale “Ivan Tsarevich, the Firebird and Grey Wolf”

 

Puppets, Shadow Theatre and Pop-up Books

Ages 5 and up

 

This adventure story tells with a lot of humor the journey of the young Ivan Tsarevich, who goes in search of the Firebird. The unlikely friendship he develops with the hilarious Grey Wolf will allow him to overcome all fears and trials. This show ingeniously dramatizes the art of storytelling and stimulates the audience's imagination.

From 2012 to 2020, Off the Beaten Path played more than 150 performances in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, France, Serbia and Ukraine.

Accelerando, time is a sharp knife (2015)

 

Contemporary shadow theatre

Ages 12 and up

 

In 2040, Time has entered the stock market and three young adults are trying to unravel the mystery of lost seconds. In contemporary shadow theater, Accelerando describes a hyper-accelerated temporality, marked by urgency and instantaneity. 

In a playful tone and in a fragmented form, the show questions social acceleration, our temporal anxieties and our remarkable resilience. Humor is combined with philosophy, and the shadows create breathtaking images to tell our perception of Time!
