Soliloquy | Charles Brecard

13 September 202220:00Les Grands Ballets' Studio-Theatre | Edifice Wilder


A soliloquy is a self-discourse, the act of talking to oneself. In SOLILOQUY, the performer meanders through their thoughts, pushing themselves to face their emotions, questions, and fears. Throughout their introspection, they are escorted by a skeleton representing the remains of humanity. Both human and skeleton interact to create a powerful waltz through confessions, accusations and expression. The show symbolizes a journey of discovery when one is confronted to their own losses, regrets, angers and internal conflicts.

The pessimistic and almost fatalistic tone is contrasted with humour, joy, and honesty. It aspires to stimulate our inner fantasy world while questioning one’s own tendency to denial, inviting the audience to challenge the status quo, take action and express opinions.
