0 Reviews
In this poetic theatrical piece, Solange, Thomas, Gabrielle, and Paul represent four different ways of life and four different elements of existence which play out over fourteen tableaux. As they move among the spaces of dreams and of the real world of hospital rooms, bars, galleries and classrooms, Herménégilde Chiasson's characters confront an overwhelming range of questions, from sex to death, from money to marriage, from the Acadian Expulsion to the Book of Psalms. The human body and soul, heart and mind interact without ever fully managing to reach each other.
