AMERICANDREAM.CA Part 1: Malaises and Part 2: Pax Americana is an original work by Claude Guilmain with choreographed movement and video projections that was last presented by le Théâtre la Tangente in Ottawa in September 2015. The show is offered with English audio translation. With this project, Le Théâtre la Tangente pursues the exploration of a theatrical form soaring beyond cultural and linguistic barriers, mixing various art forms in order to present a different scenic and theatrical language from one production to the other.
We are led to believe that anything is possible and if faith is not enough, happiness, like everything else, is a commodity that can be bought. But the American dream is a mirage and in the case of the Cardinal family, disappointment is a heritage that has been passed on from generation to generation. This project was inspired by the parable of the talents (Matthew XXV, 14-30) that could very well be interpreted by some as a seed for capitalism.
