Two Skeletons // Sébastien Provencher + Priscilla Guy
Year of creation: 2019
Duration: 60 min
Between afternoon tea and a session at the gym, the two skeletons search for their core identity, adopt healthy living habits, embrace ways of thinking and borrow ideas. Their journey unfolds, however, in a muteness that is increasingly unnerving… Discover two artists, stripped of their mortal coil, delving deep as they get to the bottom of things. Throughout a series of tragicomic tableaux, they try to find meaning in their lives. A veritable contemporary existential quest that is absolutely hilarious! Employing dance, theatre and music, this whacky, superlative show takes an incisive look at popular culture, the excesses of the Web and the superficial nature of human relations.
