In this latest episode of our Si Chants Libres m’était conté series, Pauline Vaillancourt takes us into the realm of techno opera with a powerful, alienating work. Alain Thibault’s hypnotic music and Yan Muckle’s visionary libretto combine to make this work what Wajdi Mouawad describes as “a key moment in my life as an artist”.

Each video capsule allows us to go back to the genesis of these creations, a witness to their times.
