*** ENGLISH SURTITLES FRIDAY FEBRUARY 2 ***

Marie-Ève Fontaine dazzles in a solo performance within an arresting trompe l’œil setting.

Di is going on seventeen. She lives in a big house among the fields and woods with her beloved mother Makati, her dreamer of a father Paclay, and Mario Morneau, her mother’s second husband. Her world is turned upside down by the arrival of the beautiful Peggy Bellatus and her father with their mining machines. Created by Franco-Ontarian writer Michel Ouellette, author of some 40 works, this “play for a woman alone” is composed like a musical score. Directed by Joël Beddows, the luminous Marie‑Ève Fontaine brings the text to life in a vertiginous spiral of words that unerringly find their mark.
