Grand Acts of Theatre


L’orchestre d’hommes-orchestres (Quebec City, QC)

Fifty walkers make their way single file through the city, their faces covered by mismatched oddments and ordinary scraps. Here and there one can make out a mouth or an expression. Their progress is slow, erratic. Music is what binds this motley crew together. Slowly, they tramp through both inhabited and fallow landscapes, along a river, on various byways. How long have they been walking?
