Mains moites

Catherine Gaudet + Brigitte Haentjens


Mains moites

The stage director Brigitte Haentjens and the choreographer Catherine Gaudet joined forces, along with the performer Francis Ducharme (a long-time accomplice of theirs), to take on the titanic challenge of embodying the myth of the tragic hero.

Heroes must confront evil forces and monsters of all kinds. In tragedy, they face the temptations of pride and excess. They stand out with their arrogance, err on the side of caution and undermine the balance of the world by transgressing its laws. Their fates are implacable, from meteoric rise to downfall, victims of their own excesses, atoning for the burden of human vanity.

Ducharme will be facing the monsters that appear in this dense, risky script, a hodgepodge of great classic tragedies, underscored by an epic, complex, huffing and puffing choreography of movement. An extremely ambitious challenge, in keeping with the talent of this exceptional performer.
