asses.masses, A day of gaming at the theater!

Saturday, May 25 , 2 p.m. to Saturday, Jun 1 , 10 p.m.

From May 22 to June 5, 2024, the 18th edition of Festival TransAmériques will immerse audiences in a unique sensory and artistic experience!

Canadian artists Patrick Blenkarn and Milton Lim invite us to take part in an exhilarating and extraordinary day of gaming—with no instruction manual. The epic adventure of a herd of donkeys unfolds across a wide variety of game genres, with everything from witty dialogue to scenes of copulation, reincarnation, and revolution.

Facing unemployability in a post-industrial world, the asses set off on a quest to get their jobs back. Will humans agree to give up their machines so that the donkeys can get back to work? In this politically charged, interactive experience, the animals’ success lies in the hands of the audience, an ad-hoc community who become the show’s only performers. Slowly but surely, as power is shared and solidarity spreads, the theatre is transformed by revolutionary fervour.
