... there is plenty of me in this production. Autobiographic as it is, it is still essentially a work of art... It is reality but organized in such a manner as to turn it into theatre and into poetry. My own childhood and adolescence at 887, Murray Street in a small town in Quebec coincided with the time when the francophone Canadians engaged in the active phase of the movement for self-identification. In this work I wanted to show how the history of my green years interwove with the history of the society striving to achieve self-awareness and self-identification. <...>
I always try to balance up “history” with small “h” and “History” with capital “H”, because one is related to the other. I want the audience to enter the big theme through a small door. The only chance for theatre to survive today is to try and each time create an event.
