“a show that cleverly — sometimes breathtakingly — reframes ancient notions of sin and redemption for a modern audience […] managing to find the comic in the cosmic.– Montreal Gazette

In the Gallery: Look around while visiting Centaur. Sculptures by Normand Hamel are currently on display throughout the theatre for the duration of Paradise Lost. Hamel’s phantasmagorical creatures have been likened to “last survivors of a lost civilization”. For more about the “Stray Beasts” exhibit see here.
