LE REQUIN BLANC SE MULTIPLIE
A formidable manipulator of fictions, Marcelle Hudon takes an intimate approach to material and motifs from a larger-than-life stage. In this theatre of shadows, a video camera records, defines and restructures the movements and actions of tiny puppets, characters cut out of paper or drawn from history books, closely following their progress in intertwining tales as though we were in a late-night dream or had taken leave of our senses.
While the puppeteers crank the mechanisms of this theatre of objects, light and images exposed to all in plain view, the musicians weave soundscapes and embroider threads of silence. At the very source of this poetic rapture is a white shark listening attentively to the stories of humans of all ages who recount their heady memories, recent dreams and real or imagined heroes.
