STILL LIFE

By Marie-Ève Milot & Marie-Claude St-Laurent

Translated by Rhiannon Collett

Translated from Chienne(s) (Quebec, Canada)

 

“…this show crystallizes the revival of Quebec’s feminist theatre, it's a vibrant homage to art,and a woman's place to challenge everything...” - Le Devoir

On her 30th birthday, a woman locks herself in her apartment. Paralyzed by fear, she examines the shards of her life in a poetic and raw portrait of anxiety disorders and their causes. Created with extensive research with le Centre d’études sur le stress humain, Chienne(s) was produced by Théâtre de l’Affamée and presented in residency by le Centre du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui.
