SCOOOOOTCH!

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.

Description

In this choreography of rolls, the audience sees sticky sculptures being created in real time, which the children can then unravel at the end of the show. A blend of movement, theatre, music and visual arts, this exploration of the limits of sticky paper offers toddlers a jubilant, playful and delightful experience.

Three members of a feminist rock group, escaped from a potential totalitarian regime, build a new participatory habitat on the stage of their exile. They unroll and follow this tape, tracing graphic lines and drawing spaces in the middle of a circular device. 

Unpredictable and random, the sticky strips invade even the performers’ bodies, revealing an invisible web of relationships. They create huts out of thin air, playing with their physicality as dancer puppeteers, actors and sound composers. Their collaborative sisterhood leads the audience to question notions of shelter, metamorphosis and sharing.
