    Downtown streets of Québec City
    Milk float is a 1975 milk truck measuring 45 m2 that contains many kilos of urban refuse that is metamorphosed into a discordant electro-mechanical orchestra. Inter-related kinetic sculptures create a reverberating anarchistic cacophony of motors, pulleys, wheels, gears, bells and other mechanisms in which the viewer may perceive the poetic language of consumer waste.

    Simon Dumas (Québec, Québec) et Andrée-Anne Michaud (Montréal, Québec)
    May 2, 2008 at 8 p.m.
    Premier Acte
    This film, created from short texts taken from the book Projections by Andrée A. Michaud (Éditions J’ai VU) is an impressionistic canvas depicting the “crack” of the main character, a middle-aged woman. In counterpoint to the poetic images, the actor’s role allows the viewer to feel the complexity of the emotions afforded by the text.
