Presented in French at La Nouvelle Scène Gilles Desjardins, March 10 to 14, 2020, 7.30 pm.
Créations In Vivo contributes, with Théâtre Catapulte, to this new work by Mishka Lavigne (a Governor General’s Award’s recipient) and Éric Perron (our artistic director) produced by Théâtre de Dehors.
Copeaux tells the story of a relationship that crumbles, of things that end and of what remains after. Copeaux presents the end of love, the end without great brilliance, but not without devastation.
This new work is inspired by the universe of Canadian visuel artist Stefan Thompson, a universe populated by animals, disturbing figures, forests of dreams. Copeaux is a poetic play where each image is chosen to inhabit a space that floats between dream, reality and regret.
