To book

A writer isolates himself from the world to write. His loneliness is quickly disturbed by Maski, his double, who steals his pen. The characters they create together invade the space. They want to be heard, like anyone else, and to follow through on their own story. The writer becomes a doctor in contact with Madeleine, woman of the sea. He becomes a father alongside little Tinamer. Together, they go to Mont-Thabor to free Coco, a mute, misunderstood child who paints landscapes. How far can a writer forget himself to let his work live?

Evolving in an organic universe where anything is possible, human characters and puppets bring to life the marvelous realism of the stories of the writer and doctor Jacques Ferron.

Evening program

In the quantity and diversity of the proposals offered in children's dramaturgy, few have yet explored the Quebec classics. Bringing Jacques Ferron to the stage is thus allowing the young generation to get to know the man, the creator and his poetry, just like adults to re-imbibe this giant.
