En Pointe

A spontaneously-created socially-distanced episodic series of bilingual short plays 

En pointe follows the encounters and adventures of interconnected characters living in a working-class neighborhood amid unprecedented world crisis. Emerging from their homes after a prolonged quarantine during a global pandemic, they seek human contact, purpose, and a sense of belonging. From the pressure-cooker of isolation to adapting and resisting to a neighbourhood transformed by gentrification, can their individual hopes, fears, dreams lead to collective change and connection?

Play 2 – The kitchen of the unemployed

Chef Dave is set on healing the Pointe community from global crisis with his gourmet genius. From a sidewalk pop-up sample table of free veggie tastings, he offers une petite dégustation of scrumptious hors d’oeuvres. Having fallen from Montréal’s finest pantries to the kitchen to the unemployed, he’s now set on taking flight from the pointe for Youtube influencer fame.
