Strangeties

A wordless musical production for audiences 4 years and up.

CREATED on December 5 and 6, 2014 at la Maison de la culture Rosemont. 

Strangeties is a performance that comprises a series of dramatic scenes based on raw, soft, sweet-sounding or screeching sounds. This means of expression and exploration revolves around the violin and opens audiences to daring musical avenues.

The merging of body and violin generates creatures with their own body language. They sound happy, wild, old, inspired or even strange. Yet they emerge and then disappear along with the moods they gleaned here and there in the world’s memory.
