In a polar landscape, Mirages – Les âmes boréales plunge the spectator in the heart of the ice-cold areas of the Big North. The play drives us towards parts of the country so real as fantasized, and questions so much that it makes dream. This contemporary tale plays on the illusion and uses plastic, choreographic, sound, sensory resources to arouse shock and fascination. Sound and video have an important place, and married to the movement, reveal the onirism and the magic of this landscape…

The play is interested in the capacity of contagion which the nature has on the man, to question better the imprint which the man leaves on the earth.
