La grande mascarade · Festival Accès Asie x  La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines

From March 20 to 23, 2024, Festival Accès Asie and La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines co-present La Grande Mascarade by Étienne Lou and Gabriel-Antoine Roy..

« Join us for the biggest mask show of the decade. Come and meet your funniest characters, such as Harlequin, Sganarelle and Pantalon! Together on stage at last! What’s more… it’s cheap! Everything is allowed! Bring your tomatoes! »

The curtain rises, like a loud cry that tears through the night on rue St-Dominique. Two acrobats in tights arrive on stage, with masks on their faces, and pirouettes and confetti in their arsenal! The audience is invited to witness a colourful ceremony with characters as far as the eye can see! Get your tomatoes ready, because it won’t always be jolly. The actors are at risk. They lack support. Are you ready to discover the highs and lows of acting? Will they be able to hold onto the audience’s good will? After more than eight years of practicing in a room with nylon stockings on their heads, these two acrobats have finally opened the doors to this work to offer you, as humbly as possible, the biggest masked spectacle of the decade.
