HomoBLABLAtus: n. singular – Sub-species of Homo Sapiens (also called homoblablator) manifesting hyperactivity of the buccolabial organ and presenting symptoms of addiction to all forms of verbal expression, alongside an extreme fear of silence. His approach to the world is voluntarily childlike and playful; he leads a temperate and interconnected existence and has developed an advanced model for survival based on an invented language called blablaterie.
The discovery of HomoBLABLAtus, ultimate incarnation of the human race, has forced us to question the weight of our words and our behaviour. He also invites us to seek out pristine spaces or white pages where the spoken word can resonate and the written word can permeate.
After the presentation of El doce during the 2010-2011 season, Sherbrooke audiences have come to recognize the grandeur of flamenco dancer Myriam Allard and flamenco singer Hedi Graja. We are pleased to welcome them back to the Centennial Theatre stage following a three-week run at Montreal’s Place des Arts. Spectators and critics remain “…stunned before Myriam Allard, magnificent flamenco performer, energetic, magnetic - paying homage to the purity of the form and freely revisiting tradition…” La Presse, 2010
