TRAGÉDIE MICROSCOPIQUE, OPUS 17
Some thirty spectators find themselves in a gloomy locale that is home to mutant scientists in a creepy lab. On a tiny stage (16” by 16”), majestic characters — vile, magnetic and utterly compelling — engage in dark, deranged combat.
This is not The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, nor is it a chamber of horrors. It is the gory, miniature theatre of Stéfan Boucher and Olivier Tardif, mad scientists rebelling against overblown staging who have created a theatre of horror that lies somewhere between a display of wax figurines in battle and table hockey. Think it’s a joke ? It is a microscopic tragedy, wild and disturbing. Enter at your own risk !
