Habibi’s Angels: Commission Impossible
December 2, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
Following the renewed closure of public venues by the Québec government, all in-person public performances have been cancelled. Nevertheless, Talisman Theatre Montreal has planned ahead and offers two web broadcasts with a pay-what-you-can type formula.
Deep, poetic and delightfully offbeat. The play by Kalale Dalton-Lutale and Hoda Adra is a living x-ray of Montreal that lays bare its foundations, ancient and modern. But can we really reveal the invisible? The show is a meta-experience of contrasting female visions, that of a blocked writer fighting against procrastination with coffee and cigarettes, those of Habibi’s Angels holding a Moroccan mint tea ritual and that of a playful aquatic spirit whose care is undeniable. What unfolds, is the image of a modern Montreal populated by ancient dynasties. Does integration mean Old World hospitality or isolation from the New World?
Bilingual show in English and in French.
