Using old audio recordings, Sara Moisan recreates a fictional conversation with her father Gatien Moisan, a renowned painter who passed away in 2019. In this autobiographical piece, she ponders, with tenderness and humour, on her personal relationship to her father’s artwork, on what it means to create, and on an artist’s deep motivations. She revisits the painter’s familiar gestures through a combination of real-time illustration, video, puppetry, and manipulated objects. This creates a poetic environment that is both clever and heart-warming.
Running time: 30 minutes
Techniques: miniature puppet, object theatre, theatre of matter, and video
