Circus, Theatre

Per te.

Compagnia Finzi Pasca

Hydro-Québec Auditorium

At the confluence of circus and theatre, this production is a poetic, musical, and sensory recreation of the imaginary world of a woman who left us too soon. Daniele Finzi Pasca, well-known for his creations with Éloize and Cirque du Soleil, developed this compelling show as a tribute to his spouse, who died in May 2016. A dazzling hymn to the richness of life and love, marking the return to Quebec City of the creator of the unforgettable solo performance Icaro.

Director’s Note

On a gutted stage, technicians and artists move like cats in the dark, preparing and diving slowly into the story. The story gradually envelopes the audience member: it’s the story of a book offered as a gift, a garden to build, and a fight like this one that we all, sooner or later, will have to go through.

Julie believed that all people should try to build an internal garden where they can take refuge, where they can welcome those they love, those that are lost, and those they want to meet in a personal space. So we will tell this story with a bench and a garden. We’ll include the fragility that each of us protects with armour as well as fond memories of her laughter, her notebooks filled with annotations and calculations, her advice, and her dreams.

We have often told these stories behind closed doors, imagined in the secret box we carry attached to the top of our shoulders in which we create dreams and imaginary journeys. This show is dedicated to those who plant the seeds that become trees and to those who create open, imagined places for reflection and for soothing the soul.
