Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario is a francophone theatre production company. All of our productions are presented in French, however, some shows feature English Surtitles™ so that more people can experience French theatre! We apologize, but not all content on this site is available in English.
Mononk Jules, a documentary theatre performance and literary essay, picks up some of the pieces of the little-known history of Indigenous people, a history that has never been taught. Jocelyn Sioui pulls at the threads of the story of Jules Sioui, his great-uncle, one of the greatest Indigenous heroes of the 20th century, whose legend has faded into oblivion. His fight will lead him to the point of sacrifice: a hunger strike to obtain true independence for Indigenous people. Surrounded by screens and animated models, Jocelyn Sioui takes us on a deep dive through a box of archives from which we emerge forever changed.
