Fresh News - Spring 2019!

Here we go, she's at the door,
The savage spring.
Let her in!


Happy spring to all!

That's My Sister! at Maison Théâtre                                               

The show That's My Sister! made good progress during 15 family and school performances. For Des mots d'la dynamite, it was an incredible opportunity to launch a new work at Maison Théâtre, an institution devoted to children and youth. Thank you, with all of our hearts, to the programming committee and to the theatre's entire team!

The baby is in fine health and we are very eager to show it to you again, in Montreal or elsewhere. In the performing arts, shows grow very quickly when they get the chance to be performed in front of audiences, big or small!

The theme of That's My Sister! is Fraternity. We enjoyed ourselves very much while studying the complexity of this human phenomenon.

As Chouquette the Sheep, Antonomase the Ant and Kiki the Squirrel sing it:

"We are neighbours, we're all brothers
 some are scared and some are curious
 we all share our planet Earth
 and the mix is quite delicious"

That's My Sister! in the media

 

"The many ditties heard bring joy and a touch of fantasy to the story. The actors visibly act in concert, whether they are playing tricks on each other, envying each other or making up. Through their complementary energies and their comic timing, Nathalie Derome, Steeve Dumais and Audrée Southière enjoy themselves and display a warm and touching complicity, even during little quarrels.

An ode to the imagination, to honesty and camaraderie, That’s My Sister! proves to be an effective antidote to doubt and depression."
