Alameda, le boulevard où marche l'homme libre

Marcelo Arroyo (Montréal)

March 5 to 9 and March 12 to 16, 2013

March 5 to 9 and March 12 to 16, 2013

After spending time abroad, Patricio is obliged to return to Montreal. Having lost his bearings, he is brought face to face with himself, his anxieties and his roots. Upon taking off, the plane becomes a distorting mirror in which his anguish is incarnated by buffoon-like characters who manipulate the images and voices of his past. This flight also has repercussions for Faye and Celia, two flight attendants who, like Patricio, are trying to free themselves from their self-image and from a troubling past. A gripping and claustrophobic drama, Alameda, le boulevard où marche l’homme libre paints a portrait of a Chilean-born Quebecer in the throes of a search for identity. An autofiction anchored between reality and the imaginary, Alameda is also a dizzying plunge into a fiendish burlesque cabaret. Featuring Lynne Cooper, Marc-André Leclair, Marie-Sophie Roy and Victor Andrés Trelles Turgeon, Alameda is *Marcelo Arroyo*’s first work for the stage, created out of improvisations that manipulate various cultural referents.

Marcelo Arroyo is a graduate of the National Theatre School and of UQAM and has directed more than fifteen theatrical productions. As a theatre actor, he has worked with a number of directors, including André Brassard, Emma Tibaldo, Daniel Paquette, Cristina Iovita and Wajdi Mouawad. In television he acted in the series Tactik, in which he played Manuel, Diego’s father.
