A complete and plentiful program consisting of 15 shows for families and school and preschool groups
The Maison Théâtre has announced the return of a full season in its hall. Composed of 15 shows aimed at young people from 12 months to 17 years old, this vast 2021-2022 program will run from September 25, 2021, to June 19, 2022.
Among these 15 shows, new creations are eager to be brought to the stage. The theatre will sometimes be festive and catchy, sometimes more contemplative or impactful, always bringing forth sensitive and aesthetic experiences, emotions, creating encounters for audiences and reflections on this beautiful and complex world that is ours.
As a guarantee of equitable access to art, school trips to cultural settings will continue fully this year. Throughout the season, the Maison Théâtre will once again welcome families, but also primary and secondary schools, as well as preschool groups.
THREE NEW CREATIONS EXPECTED THIS FALL
Three new creations by great artists from here and initially planned for 2020 will be premiered this fall at the Maison Théâtre:
Theatre of The Little Souls
October 2 to 17, 2021
For young people aged 2 1/2 to 5 years
Back with a seventh intimate show for young and old, Isabelle Payant of the Théâtre des Petites Âmes will offer Hermanitas, a story about diversity and uniqueness, shaped by live music, the manipulation of materials, the puppet exploration of bodies and the magic of light games.
CHANSONS POUR LE MUSÉE
October 21 to 31, 2021
For young people aged 8 to 14
It is to a new wave theatrical concert that the public will be invited with Chansons pour le musée, the new work of Karine Sauvé. Accompanied on a colourful stage by the musician and sound hack Nicolas Letarte-Bersianik, the performer sings with an open heart the story of her transformed family life. A fragmented and sensitive experience, as much for the ears as for the soul.
ANTIGONE SOUS LE SOLEIL DE MIDI
Le Carrousel, a theatre company and Théâtre Gilles-Vigneault
November 18 to 28, 2021
For young people aged 10 and over
The shock duo composed of award-winning author Suzanne Lebeau and director Marie-Eve Huot will revisit the famous myth of Antigone to reveal to young people all the light, philosophy and current events. In a sober and sensitive staging, three performers will give body, rhythm and voice to this story that has been told for centuries. A highlight of the fall cultural scene.
UN SPECTACLE DANS LES COURS D’ÉCOLE
Ample Man Danse
October 4 to 22, 2021 – In schoolyards
All primary education
In October, the Maison Théâtre will also offer primary schools a dance and outdoor music show taking place in their own schoolyard: Public Piano. Around an impromptu public piano, an urban dancer, a jazz pianist and a contemporary dancer embark on an open-air musical and choreographic journey, stimulated by constraints and soliciting the participation of students.
BAOBAB: LA SORTIE FAMILIALE DES FÊTES !
Theatre Motus and Troupe Sô (Mali)
December 2, 2021 to January 4, 2022
For young people aged 3 to 8
Performed here and in several other countries, Baobab will be presented throughout the holiday season, to the delight of a new generation of young spectators. A true celebration for the eyes, ears and heart, this show takes children on an initiatory quest full of charm and punctuated by percussion, which is inspired by African tales.
DES RENDEZ-VOUS INCONTOURNABLES À L’HIVER ET AU PRINTEMPS
Musical theater, shadows or objects, incredible puppets, a performance for teenagers, sensory experiences for very young children and more! Shows with the most varied forms will be on the program in winter and spring 2022, among others:
February 2 to 5, 2022
For teens aged 14 and over
SPLENDIDE JEUNESSE, the new teen show by Nini Bélanger and Pascal Brullemans, is inspired by content shared on social media and unfolds as a collection of paintings that are both funny and disturbing, irreverent and invigorating. Eight young performers embody in a performance this open experience that is web browsing, with its images and free speeches that break through and are reflected in multiple echoes.
Théâtre de l’Œil
February 16 to 27, 2022
For young people aged 8 to 12
Simon Boudreault’s first project as artistic director of the Théâtre de l’Œil, Furioso is a modern chivalrous epic, written by Olivier Kemeid, who has fun outsmarting codes and stereotypes. Puppets of various shapes and techniques (rod, hand, bunraku) embody here a band of colorful characters.
LOU DANS LA NUIT
Théâtre des Confettis
March 9 to 20, 2022
For young people aged 4 to 8
With his enigmatic narrative voice, video projections and architectural lighting, Lou Dans la Nuit is a work that addresses, not without a touch of humor, the universal theme that is the fear of darkness.
FAIRE CRIER LES MURS
Théâtre Le Clou
March 23 to April 3, 2022
For youth 11 years of age and older
Rebekah Skidd and Sylvain Scott (the duo behind the success of Je suis William) will once again be reunited for a musical theatre show that takes a look at the imprint that can be left by the work of the famous anonymous artist Banksy. A funny and moving proposal about the power of art, punctuated by songs and sharp lines.
G’ZAAGIIN – JE TE PROMETS UNE FORÊT
Voyageurs Immobiles, Creative Cie
June 8 to 19, 2022
For young people from 1 to 5 years old
G’ZAAGIIN – JE TE PROMETS UNE FORÊT an intimate and musical stage experience that invites you to meet: that of three creators of different origins (Quebecois, Anishinaabeg and Polish), that of traditions and the contemporary world and, of course, that of art and the very young people who will discover all the magic.
