Marcelle Hudon The Lodge of the Blessed Immortals
In partnership with Maxime Rioux
In the installation The Lodge of the Blessed Immortals, a cast of puppets comes to life, animated by inaudible low frequencies. Attached to speakers and small motors, the automatons seem driven by an unseen force, their every move generated by the modulations of sound frequencies. Their vibrant shadows speak of sensuality, combativeness and the liveliness of nature.
Open to all, 10 years old and up, no dialogues

Marcelle Hudon has been active as a puppetry artist for over thirty years. She remains fascinated by the symbolic power of the object, of the puppet and its puppeteer, but also shadows, cameras, images, objects, ideas, words and sounds. She creates shows that bring together theatre and visual arts.
This particular project is presented in collaboration with Maxime Rioux, who will animate the automatons. For several years, Maxime Rioux has used inaudible low frequencies to bring acoustic instruments to life.
Hudon and Rioux share an attraction for instant wonder.
