Marie Brassard and Infrarouge, her Montreal-based theater company, will finish developing their latest work, Trieste, during an EMPAC production residency. Trieste is a contemporary fable inspired by the city of the same name located on the Adriatic Sea.
The performance unfolds in five segments, each relating to one feature of Trieste: The Abyss, The Caves, The Sea, The Castles, and The Bora. As in the board game Snakes and Ladders, where destiny is randomly decided, protagonists climb or fall from one level to another through breaches in the storyline.
