IDIOT60min.

Concept and creation (in collaboration with the performers): Helen Simard / Written by: Helen Simard, Mathieu Leroux / Featuring: Stacey Désilier, Stephanie Fromentin, Jackie Gallant, Sébastien Provencher, Emmalie Ruest, Roger White, Ted Yates

 

Part dance show, part rock concert, and part hallucination, Idiot is the second of a trilogy of absurd creations inspired by the legendary American musician: Iggy Pop.

 

“It’s raw, it’s direct, it’s brutal, and it’s beautiful. Helen Simard manages to both move us and make us laugh with Idiot. It makes you want to fall back into Pop’s discography, and to reinvent the world in your own fashion.” 
- Le Canal Auditif

TRAGIC QUEENS60min.

Presented By: CABAL theatre / Written by: Rhiannon Collett / Directed by:

Anthony Kennedy / Featuring: Jillian Harris, Alex Petrachuk, Meagan Schroeder

 

Part frenetic, part melancholic, follow the capricious and passionate power games of three time-travellers stuck in a perpetual state of girlhood. Alienating and deeply intimate, Tragic Queens is a relentless maelstrom of eras, emotions and mirrors.

 

“Very impressive moments in CABAL’s Tragic Queens, an experimental look at sad girls in culture & history”

– Montreal Gazette

 

“Fine performances ... beyond reproach.” – Westmount Mag

STROBE LIGHTS AND NUDITY

Right after the last show of the night, join us for a wild time and support pop-up pass-the-hat performances by some of Montreal’s best and brightest female artists in sketch, stand-up, and improv. And the Friday Night Tributes are back, with IGGY POP and NINA SIMONE. Yeah, Iggy knows he’s not a girl, but he won’t let anything keep him from a good party. Will you?
