Les Poulpes

Les Poulpes is a tentacular multi/interdisciplinary collective founded in Chicoutimi in 2011. Theatre, performance and visual arts compose the architexture of their artistic endeavours. Les Poulpes have completed nine major works, participated in countless events and workshops and produced Vjette/DJette/Set, a fanzine and a ten-part web series. The energies of multidisciplinary artists Andrée-Anne Giguère, Elaine Juteau and Anick Martel converge in this unique trio. Les Poulpes are known for presenting plural and fragmented shapes characterized by their humour, derision and collaboration. They have performed in Chicoutimi, Jonquière, Vallée-Jonction, Senneterre, Montréal, Québec, Ottawa, Rivière-du-Loup, Rimouski, Halifax, and now in Sudbury. In 2017, their collective became multi-territorial and definitely tentacular, because the members of the trio now live in three different localities: Chicoutimi, Montréal and Saint-Émile-de-Suffolk, thus opening a new chapter in their creative dynamic. They have received bursaries from the Conseil des arts de Saguenay (CAS) and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) and their current project is Soi-disant dix, a theatrical work exploring the theme of value.
