THREE-RIVERS — the fourth installment of the tribute Series from Cirque du Soleil presented at the Amphitheatre Cogeco, a homage to the group Les Colocs calmly takes the form if we believe the two extracts, which were announced Tuesday morning. The date of may 8 is not the result of chance, since it’s been 18 years to the day that Dédé Fortin, singer of the band, has died. It is, therefore, to pay homage to him as the songs Just a lil ‘ nightly, self-titled show, and Pass me the puck have been presented in this sad day anniversary.
It is with much respect that Jean-Phi Goncalves has worked on the soundtracks of the popular group. The new arrangements offer a glimpse into the artistic direction taken by the team and enhance the spirit of festive, collective, and inclusive, as advocated by The Roommates. The staging of the show will be provided by Jean-Guy Legault, who will be assisted by choreographer Emilie Therrien.
The production will be at the Amphitheater for twenty performances from 18 July.
