SHORT FORMS

Since 2011, La Pire Espèce and its collaborators develop various short forms of object theater that are presented either individually, "à la carte" or one after the other in a cabaret format.

DOLLS, SIZE AND HIERARCHY

Created in 2011.
Object theatre short form.
9 minutes - 1 performer

This short form, first creation of Étienne Blanchette, was premiered in June 2011 in the context of the Théâtre de la Pire Espèce's cabaret L’anatomie de l’objet, traité numéro 2, which was dedicated to the theme of 'dimensions'. It then started its solo career with a showing at the Festival Les Trois Jours de Casteliers in Montreal in March 2012.

A child questions the hierarchical order of its large family and its own rank in it. How does size influence each role? In this short presentation, a Russian doll is at the same time child, family, path to be taken and obstacle to be overtaken. The story takes shape as the images are created by the arrangement of the Russian dolls.

This short form is also available in french.

Press reviews

" The greatest emotions sometimes arise from the most minimalist representations in terms of technical and human means. Personally, I was really impressed by the talent of Francis Monty and Alexandre Leroux, from the Théâtre de la Pire Espèce, a theatre company from Quebec, who manage with almost nothing (toy cars, cotton, Russian dolls or a small wooden house, etc.) to take the audience on a journey through it."
