Impressive Theatre Animal
A human animal unique among our local artistic fauna, Karine Sauvé is an actress, puppeteer and director of Mammifères, an interdisciplinary company that produces innovative shows for young audiences, including Les Grands-Mères mortes (winner of the Association québécoise des critiques de théâtre award), presented at the NAC in 2015. A UQAM graduate in puppet theatre, she has collaborated as a performer or designer on creations by artists in all disciplines (David Paquet, Nicolas Letarte, Nathalie Derome). If you were to write a lexicon to describe her practice, you’d have to include the words: contemporary art, modern music, organic matter, laughter, vocals, poetry, fur!

Érika Tremblay‑Roy, writer, director and artistic director of Le Petit Théâtre de Sherbrooke, draws her creative inspiration from the intersection of her art with other artistic disciplines. In search of a theatrical score that would present “words as music,” Érika joined forces with musician Laurier Rajotte (Tante T, Autopsie d’une napkin). For Histoires à plumes et à poils, she ventured further into the multidisciplinary arena by including two writers and a visual artist on the creative team. After co-creating the fabulous women's trio Lettre pour Éléna (2016), she and choreographer Christophe Garcia reunite to bring us Le problème avec le rose, a play with a mostly male cast … and just a hint of pink.
