This reading, with Sandrine Bisson, Pierre-François Legendre, Manon Lussier, Christophe Payeur, Marc-André Thibault and Alex Trahan, is the result of a week of work carried out in the rehearsal room.
This is the first step in a broadcast which should take place, in a 5 to 7 format, in a year.
The Nicolas Rioux case tells the story of a playwright who finds himself in the dock, during a city council, because of a disturbing element found in his creation. The play must be presented at the cultural center of Sainte-Victoire-de-l’Espérance.
“This is a metaphor for social networks where people express their position on subjects they do not know,” said David Laurin, artistic director at Duceppe.
The Nicolas Rioux case is one of 45 projects submitted during a call, made in December 2019, to emerging companies to select his next project offered in formula 5 to 7. The company La Fratrie and its piece were selected.
“These working sessions, which took place over a week, were intended to develop the text. The laboratory presented in webcast is the result of this work, ”explained David Laurin.
This webcast is a first for Duceppe. There were two projects last fall, but they were canceled.
The play L’Amour est un dumpling, by Mathieu Quesnel and Nathalie Doummar, will be presented in webcast in March. We still want to be able to present it to the public from February 24.
“This webcast project, for L’Amour est un dumpling, is very exciting. We have been working on this since the end of November. It’s a job that is done with director Stéphane Lapointe, who worked on the Faits Divers series, with a director of photography and a technical team. Everything must be thought of according to the shoot. We can’t wait to present it, ”said David Laurin.
The Creative Lab will be available online from noon on January 29 until February 1 at noon. Tickets for this creative lab will go on sale on Duceppe’s website at a cost of $ 10.
