Mylène Leboeuf-Gagné and Serge Bonin Collective (Saguenay & Québec)
For all audiences, 7 years +
Pantition performances are reserved exclusively for same day Innamorati ticket holders. Seats are limited. Please arrive early.
Pantition is a festive and clownish show for the whole family. It features a rather arrogant diva, eager to show off her piano playing skills, and a piano tuner who has a lovely surprise in store for her…
When the piano opens, the diva discovers, together with the audience, the group of puppet-musicians hidden inside. The vain diva attempts to activate all the characters at once, but ultimately has to ask her tuner for help.
With a lively jazz melody, and through several comical situations, the puppet-musicians’ performance unfolds before the pianist duo’s eyes as the audience is astonished by this technical and creative achievement.
Running time: 15 minutes
Techniques : string marionettes (manipulated by piano keys)
Pantition is the first project resulting from the creative partnership between Serge Bonin, visual artist and videographer, and Mylène Leboeuf-Gagné, set designer and puppeteer. The collective’s primary intention is to put visual and scenographic objects at the service of the manipulation of puppets, at the very genesis of their movement.
With this first creation, the collective places multidisciplinary integration at the heart of its creative process: the correlation between the sound from the piano and the puppet’s movement as well as the bridge between the mechanical and the living.
