A message from the Artistic Director

admin-lyne-150x150At a time when Quebec culture has been going through a period of outstanding success for its films (three Foreign Language Oscar nominations in the last 4 years) our current project, staging Denis Côté’s award-winning film Vic et Flo on vu un ours, seems like a natural. The translation and adaptation will be done by Michael Mackenzie—one of the most innovative and celebrated figures in Montreal theatre. For up-to-date news on casting and rehearsals, follow us on twitter @TheatreTalisman or “like” us on Facebook. We promise you a groundbreaking year!

poster-06Talisman will be breaking new ground this fall when it produces the world stage premiere of Denis Côté’s film Vic et Flow ont vu un ours, a genre bending horror/love story. The story combines elements of a love story (Vic and Flo) with a backdrop of a domestic drama (Vic and Flo’s unfolding relationship, Vic’s uncle and his infirmity and death), the Noir genre (two ex-cons and their parole officer, the terrifying Jackie), something of the horror genre (we won’t give any spoilers here!) with twist of Quebecois magic realism at the end. The play will be translated, adapted for the stage and directed by Michael Mackenzie.
