RESIDENCIES 2024 - 2025


The collective Les Tables Tournantes

Graceland is the name of Elvis Presley's home, where he lived and died. Disgraceland is an imagined vision of this cult place; an incursion into the intimacy of an icon; a puppet fantasy freely inspired by the King's life, orchestrated by four maids and a teddy bear.

Claudine Rivest
With the collaboration of Sophie Deslauriers and Isaac Beaudet Lefebvre

Claudine and her project Les Veuves Parallèles are the first guinea pigs in our creative laboratory! This large living room has recently been emptied of all the city's museum storage, and we've discovered an inspiring, intimate universe conducive to new ideas. Our new creation room is now equipped with a fabulous mobile workshop, a play area, and all the serenity needed for a creative "bubble"!



Le Théâtre à Bout Portant (Saguenay)
January 9 to 20, 2024

In her cozy little living room, an elderly woman takes us on a journey through the most important moments of her life. The objects that surround her daily life and populate her living room remind us of the woman she once was: a journey in which we follow the woman, the spouse, the mother, and what she has accomplished. A multitude of ingenious scenic devices and objects are used to take the spectator on a touching journey back in time, through a voice and a body that are chamberlain, delicate and fragile.

A universe both touching and imbued with magic.
An ode to life, wisdom and women.

Concept, direction, actress: Vicky Côté
Assistant Director: Lucile Prosper
Manipulation and choreography consultant : Denys Lefebvre
Lighting: Mathieu Marcil

Incarnations transitoires is a research and creation project underway since autumn 2021. On the one hand, it revolves around the desire to explore the dramaturgical potential of the theater of matter, favoring large volumes of raw materials. On the other hand, it is based on the desire to put the body in motion in relation to these materials, which come to life and transform. The idea is to transpose and externalize fleeting but invasive inner states into moving masses that interact with the body in ways that are at times abstract, poetic and playful.
