Reality hasn’t yet taken dreams hostage. Come and face—and above all, dream—the world with us. You’ll see and hear a quartet of dynamic performers who launch a political firebrand like a scream; a duo of female warrior/actors who deliver a moving testimonial that calls for a profound collective questioning; a woman at the microphone who tells the story of a passion that is both intoxicating and liberating. 

You’ll meet a collective of nine young performers who explore shadows as a creative material in an attempt to shape the invisible. Equipped with headphones, you’ll enter a luminous elsewhere ruled by sound, smoke and light. 

You’ll travel back in time with Robert Lepage, who revives the memory of the illustrious painter Riopelle in the form of 30 dramatic tableaux, and Catherine Vidal, who transforms Chekhov’s iconic play La mouette (The Seagull) into a vast living laboratory.
