Developed with the support of the National Creative Fund of the National Arts Centre, the Cole Foundation, and co-production assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts.

   

The play Frontière Nord, situated in an indeterminate geographic space, features a choral universe of women and children. In this contemporary oratorio, electro-acoustic music by composer Roland Auzet is in dialogue with two texts written by Suzanne Lebeau, as two parts of a single narrative: the walls that rise and the borders that separate and cut across territories – North and South, Children and Adults, Self and Other.

Director Gervais Gaudreault creates a major project in which choirs are omnipresent. They narrate the collective tragedy – a tragedy that touches each individual differently but affects the community as a whole. In the conflict presented to us, the characters are the spokespersons of their own experience, the witnesses to their own pain.
