The Problem With Pink

Le Petit Théâtre de Sherbrooke and La [parenthèse] - Christophe Garcia

Canada-Quebec / France
Theatre Pitch Sessions
27 May 2021

This show will be presented on May 27th at 9:30 am (EDT).

Playing happily on their private pink carpet, each day is full of fun and stories for friends Alix, Sasha, Lou and Noa.

From afar, the outside world seeps into their games. A plane flies overhead? They grow long, long wings. It starts raining? No problem: they splash in the puddles, instantly waterproof.

But everything changes when they get terrible news from the outside: the colour pink is for girls.

Suddenly, the perception of others becomes a major preoccupation, muddling their imaginations in the process.

They are boys! This place – this pink place – is not for them. Not anymore.

*This show was initially selected in the official program of the 19th edition of the CINARS Biennale. We are proud and pleased to present it to you during CINARS Web 2021.
