Car Stories


Optative Theatrical Laboratories

June 19th is famous in countercultural circles – it is the day Car Stories got kicked out of the Fringe Festival on orders of a corporate sponsor in 2001. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this cultural disaster, Car Stories is rumoured to be booking a limousine! The one-day-only show starts at the Fringe Beer Tent, and is sure to be a theatrical joyride of unprecedented proportions – for only three spectators at a time! RSVP early by emailing

June 19th, 2001. The venue is the Fringe Festival Beer Tent (Parc des Ameriques, corner of Rachel & St. Laurent). Look for the person with the yellow glasses.

Infringement Therapy

Individual, couple, and group “clients” are given appointments for infringement therapy: after being diagnosed by a theatrical Doctor, they are prescribed an interactive, dramatic and therapeutic journey. The goal of infringement therapy is to purge the “clients” of their deepest, darkest oppressions, and empower them to transform their daily social reality! RSVP by email (

À la dérive vers le présent: Un dimanche en famille

Dans le chahut d’une Sainte-Catherine piétonnière, au coeur d’un village, un petit Bronx blanc.  Dans la cour, des enfants travailleurs, rigoureux marchands au service des adultes en congé et en quête de divertissement.  À la chaîne, on maquille les « grands », leur vend des boissons rafraîchissantes préparées à la main, et ça prend le temps que ça prend.  Revisitant tous les clichés, les « petits » maîtres de cérémonie inversent les rôles, imposent leur rythme.  Comme métronome, une corde à sauter.  Elle invite à casser la marche lente et contemplative, à mettre l’égo de côté.
