A Practical Guide to Nos Repaires

Get ready! To help you navigate the different micro-performances that make up Nos Repaires, we have put together a practical guide designed to answer all of your questions. Plus, we added some suggestions to make the most out of your theatre outing!

PIECE #1

Nightly, an isolated woman creates a rite of escape in her car.

  • Creation: Siona Gareau-Brennan & Cory Haas
  • Neighborhood: Kitsilano, close to the beach
  • Important details: This show is in drive-in format! You will watch this 15-minute performance from the comfort and security of your car. You will also need to install What’s App on your smart phone, an easy and free to download app.
  • Ideal for… eternal romantics, fans of Instagram, lovers of dance, Francophiles and Anglophones, the nostalgic, and those who may be a little Covid-anxious (What’s safer than watching a show from your car?)
  • What to do before or after the show? Pick up your dinner from the numerous restaurants in the neighbourhood who offer take-out or bring popcorn, candy, and pop for a real “drive-in” experience.
  • Practical Advice: Don’t have a car? What about renting an Evo?

PIECE #2

What’s going on behind these closed doors? Isolation allows people to express themselves with total freedom. So look out, because tonight these doors will swing wide open!

  • Creation: Joey Lespérance & Rachel Peake
  • Neighborhood: In the West End, close to English Bay
  • Important Details: There are no physical seats for this short but intense performance!
  • Ideal for…: lovers of old movies and French music, Francophiles, and those who like to secretly watch their neighbours.
  • What to do before or after the show? Stroll the vibrant streets of the West End listening to Throwing Shade a popular queer podcast by Erin Gibson the “feminasty” and Bryan Safi the “homosensual”.
  • Practical Advice: Parking is available next to Sunset Beach, a five-minute walk from the performance venue.

PIECE #3

The amazing true story of an ordinary life.

  • Creation: Thérèse Champagne & Gilles Poulin-Denis
  • Neighborhood: On Granville Island, in Fairview neighborhood
  • Important Details: This performance takes the form of an intimate guided tour
  • Ideal for… word lovers, museum goers, those who love real stories as much as invented, fans of the fantasy author Lewis Carroll.
  • What to do before or after the show? We suggest trying a “Gratitude Walk“, a concept created by American author and motivational speaker, Tony Robbins, during a calm stroll along False Creek at sunset.
  • Practical Advice: Bring your umbrella, better safe than sorry!

PIECE #4

Our receptionist is here to welcome you to the afterlife. Please take a seat in our waiting room and prepare to be admitted to eternity.

  • What to do before or after the show? Why not grab a bite from our friends at Café Salade de fruits, just above? Their space has been adapted to allow for social distancing. They even have a beautiful patio outside.
  • Practical Advice: Prepare yourselves for a good introspective reflection!

After her block party, Agatha is taking a bath. Amid the bubbles, she reclaims the joy of being alone… and the freedom of the ocean.
