A little over 20 years after his first successful appearance at the Rideau event and his show Ma déclaration d'humour - which toured Quebec and delighted thousands of spectators here - Belgian comedian Bruno Coppens returns with his latest one-man show: Loverbooké, in which he gives his body to the audience to re-enchant the world!
The story of a man who sacrifices his life for the love of his neighbor... and the next one!
Shaken up by his planet in a shabby earth phase, our juggler of words comes to the bedside of an audience to be consoled without moderation to give him the viral impulse: our failures are successes that ignore themselves!
As man does not descend from the wise man, he will go back in time to find the flaw, that moment in history when everything went wrong!
Created in Brussels and at the Avignon Festival, Loverbooké has already played more than 150 dates in Belgium, France and Switzerland and is now coming to Quebec! A crazy show that uses irony, verbal and visual fantasy, absurdity and bad faith!

Infinithéâtre brings audiences a live-action puppet version of Chester Brown's seminal work, Louis Riel : A Comic-Strip Biography. A salute to Brown's artistry, the puppets are right off the page eerily naïve but remarkably evocative.

With Édith Paquet and Sandra Dumaresq
A new collaboration begins between Productions Martin Leclerc and Écoumène, with a first theatrical production entitled Le Noeud. The play was sold out at Théâtre La Licorne and will be back on the road in spring 2024.
One of the reasons for the play's success is its sensitive, realistic treatment of real issues shaking society today. It illustrates the encounter between the mother of an 11-year-old boy and his teacher. The atmosphere is tense; the former wants to know what drove her son to take his own life, while the latter, shaken and confused, is slow to enlighten her. Despite clashing visions and gnawing guilt, the two women work together to retrace the events and try to understand. What was the source of this child's distress? Was he a victim or an executioner? Their verbal jousting, raw and cruel, is both epic and surprising.
In this closed-door play, playwright Johnna Adams questions the boundaries of freedom of expression. The playwright also examines the delicate relationship between parents and teachers. Translated from the American by Maryse Warda and directed by Guillermina Kerwin.
Emilie Clepper will release in September an album composed entirely by her father, Russell Clepper, who passed on his passion for music.
