Micheline Sarrazin

The show Fred Pellerin performed July 14, 2016 on the Plains of Abraham as part of Quebec City’s Festival d’été received unanimous critical acclaim. Conceived specifically for the Plains, Fred Pellerin seized the opportunity to speak to Abraham, telling stories and recountIng tales and anecdotes between songs like no one else can.

Normal conceived the show’s visuals with the aim of transferring onto an immense stage the artist’s sensitivity and intimacy. These songs were written to be performed in an intimate setting, the challenge was to create an atmosphere on the Plains that maintained a sense of intimacy and proximity with the public. The challenge was met.
