At times fantastical, at others downright realistic, Stabat Pater tells the tale of the day-to-day life of Jeff Tracy. Tracy is the father figure from the celebrated adventure show Thunderbirds. Here, he plays the role of a retired man suffering from Parkinson’s, a degenerative disease. Come watch his heartwarming and moving story as it unfolds at the same pace as his illness progresses.


RUNNING TIME: 50 minutes
TECHNIQUES: Object theatre, direct manipulation, masks






Founded in 2016 by Mélodie Noël Rousseau and Geneviève Labelle, Pleurer Dans’ Douche produces original fusion theatre works. The co-founders put their multiple talents to use as creative springboards–whether as classical violinists, playwrights, ultimate frisbee players, somatic dancers, drag kings, object manipulators, make-up artists, stage directors or actors. Their life experience serves as a creative spark for each of their shows. They surprise their audience with raw and irreverent works. Stabat Pater follows in the creative footsteps of their other works: Socks; Mosca Techno Remix; Moi : Le zoo; Rock Bière : Le documentaire; Explosion; and In Da Club.
