Avant l’archipel

April 14, 2018. BETWEEN THE DREAM AND THE FANTASTICLénaïque la Magnifique cries every day to water the dragon-fruits growing in the orchards of her peninsula. One day, at the Continental Market, she catches the eye of a young man, Brévalaire Spectaculaire. It is love at first sight! They decide to meet every Sunday and between dates, count the steps that separates them. But without Lénaïque's tears, her trees begin to wither. To save her fruits, she begins to cry; so much so that her peninsula turns into an island.  Thus begins her quest to reach her beloved… A marriage of folktale, improvisation, poetry and songs, Avant l'archipel is full of surprises. Joël Beddows proposes both a playful and poetic show. Through games and interactions, actors Danielle Le Saux-Farmer and André Robillard invite the public to bare witness to the birth of new love and the changes that ensue.. Event Details.
