Reviews

Nuit blanche possède un charme irrésistible… L’ovation qu’ils ont reçue, le soir de la première était entièrement méritée.” – Michael Crabb, National Post

(Nuit blanche) shines in visual surprises. (Its) many delights are almost impossible to describe in words.
They have to be seen to be really appreciated.
” – Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail

Nuit blanche has an irresistibly ingenious charm… a clever concept developed with an outstanding six-member cast…
Bouchard and Danzon have a canny sense of pacing and never let CORPUS outstay its welcome.
Nuit blanche is…consistently engaging…the standing ovation that ensued was more than deserved.
” – Michael Crabb, National Post

The clever set, designed by artistic directors David Danzon and Sylvie Bouchard, consists of portable baffles and a fixed door, which are used to great effect in the split-second timing of the tightly controlled unison work and slapstick antics.
This production shines in visual surprises and unpredictability, but more to the point, the laughs are layered with meaningful subtext.
