Une histoire du bout des doigts / A story from the fingertips

Une histoire du bout des doigts is first of all a walk to a place, a center for the elderly, it is a collection of natural materials on the urban territory, it is a presence full of benevolence, it is the sense of touch, it is an encounter between the artist and magnificent humans. Each participant will be told a story and these materials will be put in contact with their hands. Can the sense of touch create more meaning in the story? What does it add and what does it take away from the experience? Will pandemic and intimacy be barriers to such an encounter? We hope that the project Une histoire du bout des doigts will be the beginning of a great adventure...


Camille Deslauriers Ménard

After studies in theatre, Camille Deslauriers Ménard found the world of all possibilities: storytelling. She's been telling stories ever since to the Dimanches du conte, in public spaces, museums, libraries, schools, festivals and even kindergartens and the Aquarium of Quebec city. She is also writing, directing, teaching and works as a puppeteer with Théâtre de l'oeil and their show Perruche. Camille, freshly arrived in the DARE-DARE universe, loves in situ and funky locations. She starts with the residency 'Écotone' from 'Baobab-Création multidisciplinaire' a cycle of research about storytelling/orality and the 5 senses. A first project, 'Une histoire du bout des doigts' will be presented through DARE-DARE to seniors to explore tactile storytelling.
