        Arlequin poli par l’Amour

        A charming fairy tale by Marivaux, Arlequin poli par l’amour reverses the Libertine inspiration of “how women become smart”. Here, Arlequin comes of age when he falls in love with Silvia, an adorable, comical shepherdess who is candidly sincere. A fickle fairy is about to marry the sorcerer Merlin when she encounters Arlequin asleep in the forest. Immediately conquered by the sight of this “handsome imbecile”, she abducts him in the hope of becoming his love, and thereby the source of his “polishing” or acquisition of smartness. Who will Arlequin marry? How can true love survive the powerful magic of the beautiful and enchanting fairy who lies so convincingly? Who can defeat her?

        Un conte de fée charmant de Marivaux, Arlequin poli par l’amour est d’inspiration Libertine et inverse le topos de « comment l’esprit vient aux femmes ». Ici Arlequin fait l’acquisition de tout son esprit quand il tombe amoureux de Silvia, une petite bergère adorable de sincérité brute. Une fée capricieuse est à la veille d’épouser Merlin le sorcier, quand elle trouve Arlequin endormi dans la forêt. Immédiatement conquise par « le bel imbécile », elle l’enlève, et cherche à le séduire en espérant de la sorte l’épouser, après qu’il ait acquis tout l’esprit qui puisse faire de lui un époux aussi « poli » qu’elle le désire. Qui sera l’épouse d’Arlequin ? Comment la vérité peut-elle survivre à l’assaut de l’enchanteresse magicienne ? Comment vaincre la belle fée abusive ?

                    L’Oratorio de Noël

                    Noël, neurochirurgien de profession, est atteint d’une maladie dégénérative du cerveau. Dans sa chambre d’hôpital, il reçoit son ex-femme Jacqueline, son fils Jean-Sébastien et sa fille Isabelle. L’esprit de Noël s’embrouille dans sa démence. Il y a maintenant trois versions de chacun des membres de sa famille sur scène ordonnés selon leur âge : son ex-femme à 20 ans, 40 et 59 ans ; son fils à 15 ans, 25 et 40, et sa fille à 17 ans, 25 et 38 ans. Noël tente de démêler la fiction démente de ce qui est réellement en train de se produire. La pièce prend des allures de tribunal et la famille de Noël se transforme en un chœur de récriminations incessantes qu’il ne parvient pas à apaiser. Le silence n’a jamais été si fracassant que lorsque Noël se retrouve seul devant l’inévitable : l’oubli de ce qu’il a été.

                    Noel is a renowned neurosurgeon who suffers from a degenerative brain condition. In his hospital room, he is visited by his ex-wife Jacqueline, his son Jean-Sébastien and his daughter Isabelle. Dementia is slowly clouding Noel’s mind. There are now three incarnations of each member of the family on stage, recognisable by their ages: his ex-wife at 20, 40 and 59 years old, his son at 15, 25 and 40 years old, and his daughter at 17, 25 and 38 years old. Noel attempts to untangle mad fiction from what is really happening. The play seems to turn into a trial as his family becomes a chorus of unending recriminations that Noel can’t manage to quiet down. The silence is never more deafening than when Noel alone must face the inevitable: forgetting what he once was.

                          De mal en pis

                          De mal en pis est une comédie sur le thème du voleur volé. Il s’agit d’un travail d’improvisation de sept acteurs sur un canevas de comédie bouffonne où les relations humaines sont gérées par l’égoïsme et le non respect des autres: des modèles à ne pas suivre en somme, mais qui créent des situations amusantes.
                          De mal en pis explores the theme of the jilted robber. It is entirely performed in French. It includes a lot of improvisation from the actors who co-author the canvas of the play involving characters ruled by selfishness and disrespect for one another: the perfect anti-model for social interaction creates amusing situations whereby two wrongs may occasionally turn out right.

                                              Don Quichotte

                                              De Cervantès à Jean-Pierre Ronfard, Don Quichotte traverse les âges. Possédé par son imagination délirante, il transfigure la réalité : le voilà en bataille contre des moulins qu’il prend pour des géants, à la recherche d’une reine de courtoisie qui n’est autres qu’une ramasseuse de patates, à la rencontre de grotesques catins de taverne qu’il aborde comme de nobles dames. Dans cette quête absurde, aidé de son fidèle Sancho amateur de saucisses, c’est un Don Quichotte québecois, ridicule, attachant, si humain qu’on en oublierait de rire.

                                              From Cervantes to Jean-Pierre Ronfard, Don Quixote travels through the ages. Overcome by his hyperactive imagination, our hero transforms reality: he tilts at windmills mistaken for giants; he leaves on a mission to find his lady love who is nothing less than a potato picker; he confuses repulsive tavern wenches for gentlewomen. In this Québécois retelling of the classic Spanish novel, Ronfard presents the ridiculous but endearing Don Quixote, accompanied by his loyal sidekick Sancho Panza, as they set out on their hilarious knight’s quest.

                                                          Britannicus

                                                          C’est un palais où les murs ont des yeux plutôt que des oreilles, où personne n’est à l’abri des regards d’autrui, et où tous pressentent que quelque chose de terrible est sur le point de se produire. Pourrait-il en être autrement dans une pièce où Néron et Agrippine se disputent le pouvoir? Ici tous les moyens sont bons pour parvenir. Néron n’hésite pas à suivre sa mère dans le crime : rapt, complots, fratricide même! Le palais va résonner de la mort de Britannicus dont les échos annonceront Néron le tyran.

                                                          It is a palace where walls have eyes, rather than ears, where nobody is safe from the gaze of others, and where all feel that something terrible is about to take place. Could it be any different in a play where Nero and Agrippina are fighting for power? Nothing is off limits in order to achieve their goal. Nero does not hesitate to follow his mother’s lead in crime: rape, schemes, the killing of his own brother! The palace echoes with Britannicus’ death; Nero’s first steps on the path of tyrants.

                                                                Figaro re-décousu brings together Le Barbier de Séville and Le mariage de Figaro by Beaumarchais. Both plays are reduced in accordance with Beaumarchais’ provision that he had written their most expended versions, and Mozart skipped the role of Chérubin.

Imaginez les Beautés Désespérées dans l’univers des Métamorphoses d’Ovide — une comédie burlesque où les dieux romains se retrouvent confrontés par le cocuage, la rivalité entre frère et sœur, l’homosexualité et le yoga. Une représentation en langue française — car les dieux-mêmes savent que le français est la langue d’amour. Jupiter est pour toujours coureur de jupon, tandis que Junon ne cherche qu’à partir en vacances. Orphée, signera-t-il un contrat de disque avec Vénus? Le vœu de chasteté de Minerve résistera-t-il à la séduction d’un dieu indien? Venez voir vous-même à la première mondiale d’une pièce écrite, mise en scène, et composée par des talents locaux.

                                                                      Synopsis (english):

Imagine Desperate Housewives meets Ovid’s Metamorphosis — a rollicking bedroom comedy where the Roman gods confront infidelity, sibling rivalry, homosexuality, and yoga. All in French — because even the gods know that French is the language of love. Jupiter is forever chasing pretty girls while Juno just wants to take a vacation. Will Orpheus sign a recording deal with Venus? Will Minerva’s vow of chastity stand up to the charms of an Indian god? Come find out at the world premier of a play written, directed and scored by local talent.

It is the story of a power-driven man, Père Ubu, who is the Polish King’s Knight of the Orders and Count of Sandomir. Père Ubu, with the help of his wife Mère Ubu and Captain Bordure, plot to kill the King and take control of the throne. The group is successful in murdering the King and driving the King’s son Bourgelas into hiding, where Bourgelas begins to plot his revenge and build an army to overthrow Père Ubu.
