Meet the cast of ANA

Monday 5 March 2012 18:00-19:00

Institut français d’Ecosse

13 Randolph Crescent Edinburgh EH3 7TT

Dominique Leduc and Alain Goulem, two of the Canadian-French speaking actors of bilingual play ANA come to the Institute to talk about the play and more specifically about the challenges and benefits of creating art in a bilingual society.

ANA is a ground-breaking international co-production between Stellar Quines and Montreal based Imago Theatre. Written by Scottish writer Clare Duffy and Pierre Yves Lemieux from Québec, ANA blends the rhythms of Scots-English with Canadian-French, dissolving the barriers between language to explore a space that words alone cannot describe.

Directed by internationally renowned Serge Denoncourt, ANA explores one woman’s story through time and across the globe – a woman who is cursed, who splits at every crossroads, multiplying to escape her own terror to be free. Now overcome by her many incarnations, ANA must face her selves to reconcile her countless existences.

ANA will receive her European première at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh from 1 to 10 March and will then undertake a short tour of Scotland from 14 to 24 March 2012 (Musselburgh, Dundee, Inverness and Glasgow).

Talk in English with Dominique Leduc and Alain Goulem
Admission free
