Voyageurs Immobiles (Montréal)
Nov. 9 – 20, 8 p.m.
Traversée tells the story of Nour and her nanny, Youmma. “Youmna smells like orange trees. She is also deaf.” Youmna and Nour create a remarkably imaginative world all of their own. Until the day comes when Nour must leave for a distant land, “where girls can go to school, even with messed up hair.” What follows is a perilous journey of hope and chance encounters: “To be someone, you sometimes have to be many.” Written by Estelle Savasta and directed by Milena Buziak, in collaboration with visual artist Khadija Baker and musician Diane Labrosse, Traversée comes to life through hearing-impaired performer Hodan Youssouf and non-deaf actress, Florence Blain Mbaye. Drawing on the evocative power and creative use of music and images, this theatre company is further distinguished by its humanism, social commitment, and exacting performances.
Presented in French and in Quebec Sign Language.
