Bilingual show in English and in French.

Deep, poetic and delightfully offbeat. The play by Kalale Dalton-Lutale and Hoda Adra is a living x-ray of Montreal that lays bare its foundations, ancient and modern. But can we really reveal the invisible? The show is a meta-experience of contrasting female visions, that of a blocked writer fighting against procrastination with coffee and cigarettes, those of Habibi's Angels holding a Moroccan mint tea ritual and that of a playful aquatic spirit whose care is undeniable. what unfolds, is the image of a modern Montreal populated by ancient dynasties. Does integration mean Old World hospitality or isolation from the New World?

Since its inception in 2005, Talisman Théâtre has sought to fulfil the mission set out by its founders: “To produce professional premieres of contemporary Quebec works in translation for the English-language performance scene.”

Sophie directs new creations, which she presents under the name of Nervous Hunter. A graduate of the directing program at the National Theatre School of Canada, Sophie looks for means to pair her love for the written word and history with research processes in dance and contemporary art.
