Love letter from a daughter to her father
Through headphones, you’re invited to follow a fictitious conversation, based on old recordings, between the actor and her father. From behind a large translucent frame, Sara Moisan paints, draws, and manipulates a small puppet, objects, and materials. Through an inventive projection system, she constructs an aesthetic universe inspired by the works of Gatien Moisan. The creator not only pays tribute to her father’s work with her precious testimony, but she also questions our relationship with death, the act of creating, and the traces it leaves behind. Enhanced by the unique audio/stage device, which provides an effect of closeness and a feeling of collective sharing, this intimate experience has universal resonance.
After the impressive Ogre, which opened Zones Théâtrales 2021, Théâtre de la Tortue Noire returns with a very different show that bears an equally distinctive signature. Ainsi passe la chair plays on the codes of visual installations and audiobooks. Written and performed by Sara Moisan, this intimate autobiographical show explores her relationship with the work of her father, the painter Gatien Moisan, who died of brain cancer in 2019.
