§Through its poetry and its musical parts,
this play exists in two versions: Antoine and Antonia. The first version redefines the
traditional family in a religious way in an incarnate drama by a cast that seems dead in
appearance while they ask only to live. This represents the way some marginal people live. Antonia
is a rather light and comic adaptation of Antoine.
§The play is very atmospheric and uses
lightning, music resembling the CD Songs of Faith and Devotion of Depeche Mode and also a
film of the ghost village of Val-Jalbert in the background showing mysterious images of
death and desperation.
de Val-Jalbert(The Legend of Val-Jalbert)
§My plays are inspired by an abandoned village around St.
John's Lake in Quebec. The Legend of Val-Jalbert is an historical reconstitution of a
ghost village. A true haunted village legend is then posed, a young couple dies
in a cavern and comes back to haunt the village. This legend actualizes the closing down of
one factory of the past to the closing down of all the industries based in the region of
Saguenay-St. John's Lake of today.
§The play was going to be done at the
village and the cast were going to be the people working in the restaurant, on which the
personalities of the characters were based on. Unfortunately the company running the
restaurant lost its contract and the play was never made.
