Temporel Lemieux Pilon 4D Art 7 Fingers

TEMPOREL a new work by Lemieux Pilon & Les 7 Doigts Jan. 10 to 27 at Cinquième Salle of Place des Arts

Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon (4D Art), and Isabelle Chassé and Patrick Léonard (Les 7 Doigts) bring you their new work, Temporel, a passionate and humourous blend of poetry, digital illusions and body movement that explores new forms of artistic expression set to an original score by Julien Mineau (Malajube, Fontarabie) and the acrobatic choreography of Shana Carroll. The show runs at the Cinquième Salle of Place des Arts in Montreal from Jan. 10 to 27.

A man's life is told in fragments, out of sequence. We first meet him as an old man, his lifelong partner beside him, surrounded by piles of books, lost in a metaphorical forest of memory. But in his head the man is every age: adult, infant, elderly, child, all at once. As he recalls his past, a number of other characters, both real and imaginary, emerge. The man is trying to find his place in the world: he seeks happiness, true love, the woman he lost. Will he be able to establish his identity in a world become increasingly unreal?

Temporel, a Bell presentation, is interpreted by Patrick Léonard, Isabelle Chassé and Gisle Henriet, along with a number of characters generated by virtual reality.

Temporel is a co-production with Place des Arts (through its Residencies and Co-Production Program) and France's Espace Jean-Legendre – Théâtre de Compiègne, Scène nationale de l'Oise en préfiguration. The show is also produced with the technical collaboration of Montreal's VYV Studio.
