Castor et compagnie is a concert of slightly erotic love songs. Started in 1992 with Au pays du castor, the suave and explicit song cycle carries on. Written (lyrics & music) by Joane Hétu, these suave and explicit songs are spicy musical foreplays performed by artists who know how to use their tongue… and plant it firmly in their cheek.

Sons et perversions is a musical deconstruction by Diane Labrosse. Set up in a deserted Portuguese desert, she captured noises: cries, motors, machines, animals, clicks, etc. She wrapped up music around these perverted sounds to produce a sound scaffolding built in the spirit of freedom and playfulness.

Instrumental theatre for feet, hands and mouths. Pataphysical poetry and clumsy music. Danielle Palardy Roger presents a collage of naive songs and freely adapted excerpts from Voltaire’s “Candide.” The performance unfolds as a sung and recited delirium around the open belly of a prepared piano. This is Danielle Palardy Roger’s first solo performance, foretelling her future works. The libretto is engaged, the music somewhere between programmed and improvised, acoustic and synthetic.

Double sens features female choreographers and composers hailing from various schools and trends, and ready to play in real time. Designed by Joane Hétu and Danielle Palardy Roger, this improvisation concept uses a standard deck of cards (1-10, jacks, queens, kings, and suits). According to the combinations of cards that are randomly drawn, the artists are invited to perform, do and undo in the course of snapshot events of varying lengths, shapes, colors and goals.

Here are the meanings of some of the cards: Hearts, full; Spades, limited; Diamonds, shifting; Clubs, quiet. Jacks, extra musician; Queens, extra dancers; King, everybody in; Jokers, play a randomly selected phrase.
