PREMIERES JANUARY 10 AT CINQUIEME SALLE OF PLACE DES ARTS
The life of a man, from birth to death, is recounted out of order. He first appears as an old man, alone with countless piles of books, the forest of his memory. But all stages of his life overlap in his head: he is an adult, a baby, a senior and a child, all at the same time. Meanwhile, he’s visited by visions both real and dreamlike of past encounters emerging from the depths of his mind.
All of these stages co-exist in his never-ending search to find “his place” in this world. He longs for happiness, contact with others, true love, and he seeks to incarnate these desires in his increasingly virtual reality.
Temporel is the fusion of Lemieux Pilon and The 7 Fingers’ singular worlds: an organic marriage between multimedia and circus, in which the physicality of the performance is magnified by virtual illusions.
