Dreamy play blurs the natural and the supernatural
Vancouver’s one French-language theatre presents a captivating tale
by Chris Lane
You get Écume, a charming tale of two lovers trying to untangle fact from fiction, and bridge the gap between the normal and the paranormal.
In a cast of odd characters, Momo is certainly the oddest.
Morgane is certainly no ordinary human, but Émile’s logical mind cannot accept that she may well be part fish, nor does he have any less trouble grappling with the story of her mother, Simone.
Even audience members whose French isn’t perfect can thoroughly enjoy this show. The actors at times move around the stage like dancers, and the excellent soundtrack complements the choreography and artistic costumes to create a grown-up conte de fée that’s absorbing even if you don’t entirely understand the plot.
