MONTREAL, December 11th, 2017. From February 14th to 16th, 2018, La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines presents Bullshit Threshold (Marie Davidson / Les Filles électriques).
«The Montreal artist, who compiled an excellent Five of the Best feature for us recently, has a sound – spoken – word poetry performed over deliciously humming, percussive cold-wave music, essentially – that would seem to lend itself most naturally to small rooms. It certainly does do that, but her show on Friday night also proved she is more than capable of commanding a large open-air stage. That’s hardly surprising given her immensely likeable, charismatic stage presence.» – Kit Macdonald, THE NATIONAL
«Avec Adieux Au Dancefloor, Marie Davidson dénonce brillamment la vacuité des nuits dont son album est peut-être paradoxalement le miroir contemporain le plus pertinent, entre techno et Italo disco..» – CANAL+
Marie Davidson’s embodied texts and rhythmic music are perfectly suited to the cinematic imagery of John Londono and Gonzalo Soldi. Using footage shot on infrared cameras, Londono and Soldi mix the projections live on stage. It’s a show about human relationships, dramas, about separations, night life and show business! It’s all served up with a touch of humour and a pinch of sarcasm.
Bullshit Threshold is a poetic and theatrical project from musician Marie Davidson, a young artist who is exploring new dimensions in her work with this show. An early version of the piece was presented at the Festival Phénomena in 2016 and the SONAR Festival in Barcelona, in June 2017.
