    Thomas Hellman explores American mythology by immersing himself in the period between the settling of the West and the Great Depression of the 1930s. In a show codirected with Brigitte Haentjens, this multitalented artist blends blues, folk and gospel in a musical illustration of artists’ role in bringing meaning to chaos.

    In the depths of winter, Gilles and Esther, a Francophone couple, leave Montreal for Vancouver. They have trouble assimilating, and gradually withdraw into themselves; their apartment becomes their own little world, the setting for a bizarre existence fuelled by their imagination. But how long can they sustain a life on the fringes of society?

  1. Une femme à Berlin

    NAC Theatre

    Nazi Germany is on its last legs. Pounded by the Soviet air force, Berliners take refuge in their basements. Out of the chaos rises the voice of Marta Hillers, a young woman whose diary records the sacking of the city and the mass raping of women. Brigitte Haentjens transforms Hillers’ scorching prose into a tragic chorus delivered by four mesmerizing performers.

To ward off disaster and reclaim her authority, she disguises herself as a man.
