The Lost City of the Wolves, Told With Pen and Pencil
On October 31st, a couple of wolves furtively debarks at the port of Montreal and rapidly blends in with the Halloween crowd. Instinctively, they head for the hospital where Elise lives, a nine and half year-old girl. According to an ancient legend, a child bearing their mark and suffering from a mysterious illness holds the key to the city of wolves, a mythical land that they have been seeking for so long… Elise, nicknamed the child with the wolf mask, does not realize that she will be guiding them on this fantastic quest.
The Lost City of the Wolves, Told With Pen and Pencil treats the audience to an animated performance of Richard Lacroix’s scenic exploration artwork. This is a fable about the imaginary, the joy of living and freedom.
Théâtre de l’Œil gratefully acknowledges the Caisse Desjardins du Plateau-Mont-Royal for its generous contribution to the making of The Lost City of the Wolves, Told With Pen and Pencil.
