Theatrical performance — Six exterior stations.
L’Arbre de la rue Durocher was sculpted by Armand Vaillancourt between 1951 and 1953. The account of the events surrounding its creation is itself a story; through its realisation an artistic discourse takes shape and becomes a part of our recent history. The nation is being constructed as the artist leaves his studio and walks out into the street. Here, nature is a megaphone.
This “Arbre de la rue” looks through the prism of years past into the primitive tracks of the commitment and attitude necessary, even today, to head to the front lines. For 12 hours, the artists will construct a piece recalling, both by action and word, the beauty of required combat.
