An all-woman
cast tackles contemporary femininity in Talisman’s Clean Slate

In Clean Slate six friends
gather to celebrate life, and death in a brave, messy, and above all authentic
portrait of millennial sisterhood. This examination of young women reclaiming
their sexuality is a celebration of Montreal’s emerging talent and makes Clean Slate a play to watch out for in


Talisman Theatre’s March 2019 production of Clean Slate is a translation of
Catherine Chabot’s award-winning play Table
rase, first presented in 2014 at and since reprised twice due to popular
demand. Chabot is a graduate of the Conservatory of Dramatic Arts in Montreal,
and is winner of Best Text from the Quebec Association of Theatre Critics for Table rase (AQCT/2016).


“How do we make meaning of our lives? How do
young women express their sexuality? What is the value of community and
friendship in our digitized world?  These
questions draw me into the world of Clean
Slate: a visceral and raw examination of life, friendship, personal choice,
sexual expression and the creation of a meaningful life.” -Leslie Baker, Director of Clean Slate


Talisman Theatre was founded in 2005 by
National Theatre School graduates Lyne Paquette and Emma Tibaldo. Guided by
Artistic and Executive Director Lyne Paquette, its mission is to produce
professional English-language premieres of contemporary Quebec plays. Talisman
Theatre is funded by Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des arts et du

Cinémathèque québécoise 335, boul. De Maisonneuve Est

Film screenings within the Uprisings cycle

IV. Through (blazing) conflicts and V. Through (indestructible) desires

The Galerie de l’UQAM and the Cinémathèque québécoise, in partnership with the Musée du Jeu de Paume in Paris, present
Soulèvements, by the curator and art historian Georges Didi-Huberman. Already presented in Paris, Barcelone, Buenos Aires,Sao Paulo and Mexico, the exhibit takes place in two locations, at the Cinémathèque québécoise and at the Galerie de l'UQAM. Its multidisciplinary approach emphasises what testifies of political, social and
aesthetic uprisings. What
does uprise us? Forces: psychic, bodily, social. Through them we transform immobility into
movement, overwhelm into energy, submission into revolt, le renunciation into
expansive joy (Georges Didi-Huberman). The exhibit is accompanied by movies, which navigate between documentary, political movie, fiction and experimental movie, thus telling a brief crossing of cinema history. 

The Uprisings exhibit is organized by the Jeu de Paume, Paris, and directed by the Galerie de l’UQAM and the Cinémathèque québécoise for its presentation in Montréal.
