Tout inclus sur la planete rouge // All inclusive to Mars


Egotrip Productions just presented a brand new performance for Festival Phenomena.
Tout inclus sur la Planète Rouge
Presented by Egotrip Productions 
[Arthur Desmartaux & Allison Moore]
Bilingual multi-media Shadow play — 40 minutes.
All Inclusive on the Red Planet is a bilingual sci-fi shadow-puppet show telling an uncanny story of the first tourist mission to Mars. After unsafely landing, the astro-tourists must learn to survive on the inhospitable red planet, facing incredible odds like massive sand storms and mysterious attacks from unknown terrors. Using vivid technicolor video backdrops, hand puppets, live performers and featuring a psychedelic retro sci-fi soundtrack, this impressive mystical play owes much to the cinematographers and special effects masters of the sixties sci-fi genre films. True to retro science-inaccuracy, this story is just a little step ahead of today’s reality. All Inclusive on the Red Planet is a multi-media puppet journey exploring vast horrifying territories beyond any human imaginings!

À 20hThe More of Everything Revival Hour
Marionnette contemporaine, bilingue — 40 minutes.
Cette pièce conjugue marionnettes, banjo, humour et magie des projections. On peut y entendre des légendes anciennes sur l’orgueil et l’ambition, agrémentées d’un commentaire ironique sur la société contemporaine. Ce spectacle de variétés tragi-comique, fait de bricolage et de technologies médiévales, couvre une multitude de sujets allant de la période des demi-dieux de la Mésopotamie aux bourdonnements désillusionnés de Facebook en passant par la démence du style Harper.

À 21h30 — Tout inclus sur la Planète Rouge
Théâtre d’ombres, bilingue — 40 minutes.
Dans un futur rapproché a lieu la première expédition touristique à la fine pointe de la technologie vers la Planète Rouge. Un couple richissime d’astronautes amateurs est aux commandes de cette mission périlleuse vers un environnement hostile. Ces deux acolytes devront faire face à d’incroyables phénomènes météorologiques et créatures inconnues. La pièce nous fait vivre un aller simple vers les mystères intersidéraux qui nous entourent en faisant usage de multiples effets spéciaux qui rappellent la gloire des premiers films de science-fiction.

The More of Everything Revival Hour is a work comprised of storytelling, puppetry, banjo music, humour and overhead projector magic that interweaves age-old legends of adventure and hubris with tongue-in-cheek commentary on contemporary society. This tragicomic, DIY, medieval-tech variety show touches on everything from the demigods of Mesopotamia, to disillusioned Facebook drones to the heights of Harper-Brand lunacy.

Making Mosaic Chairs - Plateau-Mont-Royal


This summer Arthur Desmarteaux and Allison Moore were asked to participate in a group exhibition at la maison de la culture du Plateau-Mont-Royal. The theatre is getting new chairs, and so the gallery asked 53 artists to make something with the old chairs. Egotrip decided to cover the chairs with mosaic ceramic tiles. Here are some pics:
