Still Life : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Still Life


Claude Breton-Potvin and Chantal Dupuis with C ARTS

See tickets below


Site-specific theatrical performance combining movement and text, featuring two women and two couches in two different cities. One in Berlin, the other in Montréal: two performers united through the magic of video to create clumsy and crazy choreography. In a seemingly banal space, a surreal universe appears to offer a comical and absurd look at the world around us. Claude Breton-Potvin and Chantal Dupuis are French-Canadian actresses. Together, they explore how the simple and the mundane can turn into joy and transcendence.

Still Life was first presented and recorded for the OFFTA Festival in Montréal, Québec, Canada in 2021.

Performed mostly without spoken text, with some spoken text in French, and English subtitles.

Written, created and performed by Chantal Dupuis et Claude Breton-Potvin
