First, there’s one. Then, there’s two. And finally, there are nearly 40 performers on stage! Together, they form a chorus from all four corners of Canada. Born here or abroad, Indigenous, Metis, men, women, non-binary people, but all French-speaking, these creatives investigate our roots and our dreams, revisit our heritage and dare to raise questions about identity: who are we collectively? What defines us? What divides us and unites us? And what does it ultimately mean to be francophone in Canada?

Un.Deux.Trois. consists of three plays by Mani Soleymanlou that come together in one grand theatrical experience. It is a multifaceted and moving declaration on language, migration and identity that goes in search of francophone Canada without rants and placards, rhetoric or platitudes. From one dialect to another. From one ocean to another.
