About The Show

The Quest – Debajehmujig (Wikwemkoong)
30 min

The Clowns have noticed there is something wrong with the water, she is not being treated properly. The clowns go on a quest to find the seven Anishinaabe values because it is these values that can restore the water. The values are: patience, compassion, truth, trust, honour, respect and love. Things are complicated by the fact that they must teach humanity about these values again so that the water can remain pure once it has been healed.

Bruit – Philippe Thibaudeau (Montreal)

30 min

Avoiding a cacophonous world that overwhelms him, Philidor isolates himself alone at home in silence. From there, he tries everything to create a place where harmony can be omnipresent. In a not-so-distant future, he finds himself despite all at the heart of a reality which he cannot grasp. Because between being in complete control and completely losing control, there is just a single mishap.
