LA CHAPELLE SCÈNES CONTEMPORAINES is a renowned theater company in Montreal that offers unique series of workshops, festive events, conferences and atypical performances in a contemporary setting.
For mature theater lovers only, from September 8th to the 3rd of October, LA CHAPELLE invites you to discover the GRAND CRU Festival and its interesting line up of 7 shows that will be sure to titillate your senses and open your eyes to various forms of human sensuality in its raw form.
Andréane Leclerc and Gerard Reyes opened the festival with their multidisciplinary theater performances - LA PUTAIN DE BABYLONE, MANGE - MOI and THE PRINCIPLE OF PLEASURE in which contortionist acts, striptease / burlesque and contemporary dancing shed light on the principles of pleasure, perversion and voyeurism as being integral parts of humanity.

La Putain de Babylone
La Putain de Babylone is a reinterpretation of the Creation of the World and of the Book of Revelations that shows a depraved relationship between God and his "whore"
Mange-moi is a female contortionist’s point of view on a practice that has devoured her inside out slowly but surely.
The Principle of Pleasure
An expressive solo dance that speaks of codes of conduct and explores the relationship between performer and audience
In Or cirque, traditional circus acts (clowns and trapeze artists) are twisted and stretched to their limits as human beings, becoming objects amongst others.
On stage we see a boxing ring. The play draws us into this combat sport’s universe, with all its codes, just like a hoax. The spectator is immersed in a phantasmagoric space that reveals and questions the use of violence under all sorts of extremes.
Unrelated is a choreography that enunciates the struggle of indigenous women. This dark artwork sheds a light on the cruelty and vulnerability that these women face in Canada
In this pluridisciplinary carnal circus, where each number is a work of art, we approach eroticism without biases, without censorship, without restraint and in all its flavours, whether luminous and pleasurable or dark and taboo.
