Part of the Café-causerie — Budding creations! event
Four creative teams present their works-in-progress.
Bijoux is a music box that opens up, revealing a little girl and an old lady dancing in the ballerina’s place. It’s an encounter between contemporary Montréal and the city’s cabaret nightlife in the 1950s. A story about fragmented recollections and a spirit searching for lost memories. A tale of two characters that believe they are weeds as they try to push through the cracks in the asphalt.
