Bijoux is a show which comes to life inside a piano that also doubles as a puppet theatre. It tells the story of an old lady dealing with fragmented recollections, and a little girl who defies gravity as she rambles playfully on the rooftops. It’s an encounter between contemporary Montréal and the city’s cabaret nightlife in the 1950s. A tale of an ageless friendship between two endearing characters that, like weeds, try to push their way through the cracks in the sidewalk.

L’Allumette, Théâtre de marionnettes celebrates the ephemeral and the beauty of imperfect things by creating worlds with ingenious mechanisms and undefined boundaries. Founded by Marie-Claude Labrecque in 2017, the company’s theatre of images’ approach places puppetry front and centre. As a scenographer, performer and stage director, Marie-Claude Labrecque has always focused on puppetry arts. She has worked with several puppet theatre companies (Théâtre en l’Air, Théâtre Motus and Théâtre de la Dame de Cœur, among others) and on television and film productions. Bijoux, the company’s first production, which premiered in 2017, was created in close collaboration Caroline Tanguay.
