Le Rossignol, Renard et autres fables : une chinoiserie pour le XXIe siècle…

LE ROSSIGNOL, RENARD ET AUTRES FABLES : A must-have souvenir book

The Nightingale and other short fables souvenir book

Ex Machina, in collaboration with Alto, publishes a limited edition souvenir book to commemorate The Nightingale and Other Short Fables, directed by Robert Lepage.

Extensively illustrated and presenting many new documents, this book recounts the journey taken by Ex Machina’s creative team, from Vietnam to France and even Quebec. The reader is invited behind the scenes of a fascinating production where opera meets with puppet art. Winner of the Claude-Rostand Prize awarded by the Syndicat de la critique en France for best lyrical production created outside Paris (Aix-en-Provence), The Nightingale and Other Short Fables, a collage of some of Igor Stravinsky’s works, is praised everywhere with equal enthusiasm since its debut in Toronto in October 2009.

The Blue Dragon graphic novel cover

Graphic Novel of The Blue Dragon

Alto Edition, in collaboration with Ex Machina, is proud to announce the publication of the graphic adaptation of the show The Blue Dragon.

Pierre Lamontagne, the central figure in The Dragons’ Trilogy, who departs to study art in China as the play closes, resurfaces twenty years later in Shanghai where he runs an art gallery. Here he meets Claire Forêt, a Montreal ad executive, who arrives for a visit to rekindle their friendship and adopt a Chinese baby. Claire, who had known Pierre in another life at art school, casts a western look on his current existence. Through the shock of their rediscovery and confrontation, their common past opens an unexpected door to the future for both. Enter Xiao Ling, a Chinese artist exhibiting at Pierre’s gallery. As she faces wrenching choices, the young woman awakens hopes long buried in Claire. The encounter of these three characters brings about fundamental changes for each.
