An instrumental theatre work by Michel Smith (Premiere)
In collaborating with composer Michel Smith, who has worked for twenty-five years in the theatre and multidisciplinary fields, Quasar wanted to bring to the public a new event at the intersection of music, happenings and theatre. After Carrefour sax I and II, which expressed in an ambulatory (walk-about) format, 20 years of the quartet's history, J'm'en SAX ! is looking to the future, or even to another place ...
When spectators enter the hall of the Gésu, they find themselves immersed in the dream world of the musicians, a dream envisioned by the composer. Set, costumes and a video that will serve as the composer's presence on stage with the musicians are integral parts of the work. Twenty tableau will follow one after another with changes of scenery and lighting, keeping everyone spellbound.
Quasar, once more, walks the tightrope, takes risks and dives deep!
With J’M’EN SAX! Quasar enters the home stretch of a dazzling 20th season of some 40 concerts that took them from Montreal to Bulgaria, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, Russia and Estonia.
