Co-presented with Théâtre Outremont
Karl is a lighthouse keeper who lives in isolation in the middle of the ocean. Every day without fail, he switches his beacon on and off, and that seems to be enough to keep him happy. Somewhat grumpy and authoritarian, Karl keeps the bits and pieces of himself in their place, tidy and organized, much like a military officer. But one of his pieces is growing tired of this routine. A curious and independent daydreamer, this piece of Karl decides to go off on its own. . . This is terrible! Suddenly, Karl looks all bent out of shape and incomplete. What can he do? He decides to pull out all the stops and sets off in search of this little piece of him. This quest will make him more flexible allow him to smooth out some of his rough edges. . . quite a feat for a square!

Betty BoiBrut’ is an association of diverse energies that share artistic and human values, a place where skills merge and grow together.
