Vie et mort d’un char boiteux

A Créations In Vivo’s production
(2015- ) • General audience • Ages 12 and up

Vie et mort d’un char boiteux (Life and Times of an Old Beater) is the story of a real life adventure. This epic journey which started in Canada but finished literally at the end of the road in Panama, was for Stéphane Guertin a true revelation which led him to a kind of awakening. Through storytelling, shadow and object theatre, he recounts events that are sometimes funny, sometimes touching but always gripping. We get to ride shotgun with the author himself for the most intense 40 000 kilometres of his life!
