Je me soulève

country:
Quebec (Canada)
language:
French

Twenty young actors are brought together for a creation lab by stage directors Véronique and Gabrielle Côté, to create a collective work at one of the great national theatres. Over a full year, they scour contemporary Québécois poetry to tap into the spirit of the times. Whether in workshop settings or at the four corners of the territory, we watch the creative process of Je me soulève unfold. What kind of people will we be in the future? How can art transform the world? Will we still be able to have children? Rebellious, filled with the passion of those who dream of beauty, obeying only their intuition, they come together to forge an ode to life. And when one of theirs is elected to the Quebec’s National Assembly, poetry literally becomes an integral part of the country’s political landscape.
