French Theatre Student Matinees


What can we expect from theatre? What does it hold in store for us?

When I go to the theatre, I’m ready for ANYTHING. There aren’t many places where I get the feeling that anything, anything, anything can happen, can appear, can become—and in a way I couldn’t possibly imagine, much less predict.

~ Mélanie Dumont, Associate Artistic Director, Youth Programming

    The grass is always bluer on the other side of the fence

    Marco meets Marco Bleu. He’s a mirror image of Marco, except he’s all blue. On his planet, it’s always a holiday; there are gift machines and a talking candy dispenser. Then, ding! ding!, the bell rings, and Marco has to choose: go back to his exhausted parents and the screaming baby, or stay forever in this fabulous place. A philosophico-spatial dilemma!

    The Théâtre de l’Œil’s amazing puppets embrace Larry Tremblay’s writing in this adaptation of the acclaimed children’s graphic novel Même pas vrai. Like the promise of a starry sky!

    Like galloping stories!

    Red horse, green horse, wooden horse, iron horse: you can have a thousand horses, but when all’s said and done, there’s none better than a horse of blue. A single one of his tears can become an ocean, a whale, a school of fish! With passion, a little girl tells us the horse stories her grandfather used to tell her, because even though his rocking chair is now still, something very precious remains.

    A hearing actress and a deaf actor perform this sublime theatrical score about memory and legacy, in a symbiotic fusion of the movement of language and the poetry of movement.
