Relaxed performance. According to what criteria and in whose eyes do we achieve success? Lévriers is a theatrical investigation led by director Sophie Gee and five others who, like her, have remade their lives in Montreal: a Dutch actress, a Québécois dancer, a Rwandan rugby player, an Antillian rapper, and a retired Jewish businessman. Over the course of a creative laboratory, they all look back on their journey and their culture for ways to define success. Beyond North American performance anxiety and individualist worries, a debate is opened that is at once complex, touching, and existential.
A graduate of the National Theatre School, Chinese-Canadian director Sophie Gee develops a unique space of creation, between theatre, dance, research, and contemporary art.
