A production of Théâtre Ébouriffé,
in collaboration with Le Carrousel theatre company / associate producer,
and in residency at Théâtre de la Ville (Longueuil).
In a world in which things often go in twos, SHE is missing a hand, and HE is missing a foot. Both quickly and magically, they correct the situation: he has two feet and she has two hands! Are they playing? Are they imagining? Whatever it is, no sooner said than done: they invent a factory for feet and hands. The first visitors flow in: a DEAF WOMAN, a WOMAN WITHOUT A NOSE, a NORMAL MAN who wants to build up a reserve, a man with a CLUB FOOT, and finally, a MAN WITHOUT ARMS. SHE and HE then think about adapting their factory to the situation. In exchange for their services, SHE and HE receive . . . flowers. Yes! Flowers inside . . .
Children aged 6+
A Show . . . and an Exhibition
Before the performance, children attending the show will see an exhibition of photographs highlighting the themes of Des pieds et des mains. With this first incursion into the world of photography, director Marie-Eve Huot hopes to introduce children to different aesthetics and artistic languages, enabling them to discover how a single theme can trigger a variety of art objects.
Filmmaker and photographer Nicolas Lévesque (In guns we trust) produced the exhibition of original photographs. He made portraits of different people whom he met during his travels through his native region, Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean. As a humanist photographer, he traveled through towns, villages, and forest, looking for faces, silhouettes, and bodies that are varied, different, unique. The exhibition and the show are in dialogue. The director hopes that this experience will inspire children with the energy to engage on a quest for meaning, a desire to shed light on an often-disconcerting world.
The exhibition Des pieds et des mains was awarded a Grand Prix – Photographie at the Concours Lux 2017: les 100 images de l’année au Québec.
