For children aged 8 to 13, the Théâtre Everest offers a mask-making workshop inspired by mythological creatures of Asian culture. More than a workshop, at this magic-making event, children will learn about the history and place of mythical creatures in the Asian cultural universe. Asian mythology has an endless variety of magical creatures with supernatural powers. By immersing themselves in the creation of a mythologically inspired work, participants are invited to connect with different cultures through art, stimulating their imagination and having fun!
Théâtre Everest is a theater company founded in 2016 by sisters Chloe and Jade Barshee, who share its general and artistic direction. The co-directors wear the hats of playwright, director, and performer in their original creations. By alternating dramaturgical writing and stage writing, relying on improvisation, and using new technologies: this horizontal work method prioritizes their collective writing, creative instinct, the construction of evolving images, and interdisciplinarity.
In the spring of 2016, the company marked the beginning of its adventure by receiving a grant from the creation program offered by the MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), which allowed them to approach valuable collaborators who helped bring their first creation, Bâtardes, to life. Since 2020, Théâtre Everest has been working on their next creation, Dernière Frontière, a Franco-Yukonese co-production that was presented in Whitehorse in January 2023 as part of the Festival Pivot.
