mouvance by Jérôme Blais.
Based on texts by Gérald Le Blanc, Georgette Le Blanc, Sarah-Marylou Brideau, Herménégilde Chiasson, France Daigle, Léonard Forest, Céleste Godin, Gabriel Robichaud, Roméo Savoie and Serge Patrice Thibodeau.
Soprano Suzie LeBlanc, a native of Moncton, joins composer Jérôme Blais, director François Racine, film-maker Phil Comeauet and scenographer Karen Trask to present a show based on the theme of the sphere of influence and banishment, from texts by Acadian artists. Sound and visual environments are linked in a continuous way, drawing the public into a genuine migratory journey led by Leblanc’s voice and the musicians who accompany her, in the light of suggestive images.
Realized thanks to the New Chapter program of the Canada Council for the Arts.
