The story combines elements of a love story (Vic and Flo) with a backdrop of a domestic drama (Vic and Flo's unfolding relationship, Vic's uncle and his infirmity and death), the Noir genre (two ex-cons and their parole officer, the terrifying Jackie), something of the horror genre (we won't give any spoilers here!) with twist of Quebecois magic realism at the end. The play will be translated, adapted for the stage and directed by Michael Mackenzie. Stay tuned for news on casting and rehearsals, and on all Vic and Flo developments, please follow us on twitter @TheatreTalisman or LIKE us on Facebook at Talisman Theatre.
Talisman will be breaking new ground this fall when it produces the world stage premiere of Denis Coté's film Vic et Flow ont vu un ours. A genre bending horror/love story, Vic and Flo won numerous international awards including the prestigious Berlin Film Festival Alfred Bauer award for opening new perspectives on cinematic art.
Translation and adaptation developed through Playwrights' Workshop Montreal's The Glassco Translation Residency in Tadoussac and Translation Workshop Program.
