Generated summary (experimental)

Theatre Junction is a live art ensemble, which, since its inception in 2006, has presented itself as a multilingual, and multidisciplinary collective.
The research and writing of Mark Lawes and Raphaele Thiriet is derived from a system of collective creation in search of new artistic languages and forms of representation.
This mode of creation is at the ‘junction’ of contemporary dance, theatre, film, music and visual art.
The Trilogy is one of 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts to mark the 150 th Anniversary of Confederation.
“A genre-defying exploration of live and digital disturbances that ask, “if the medium is the message, what does it say?” The future becomes a retrospective in an absorbing probe in search for the possibility of ‘re-enchantment’ in a technological world.”
The last two years Theatre Junction has been working on the development of the he Supernova Trilogy, a multidisciplinary and multi-media work composed of three independent modules.
The explosive impact of new technologies on consciousness and the erosion of the utopian promise of the American Dream, combine to create a future that has yet to be constructed, in which science and imagination collide.
Each module will consist of live performances and satellites, including short films, concerts, and installations.
Director: Mark Lawes Performers: Frédéric Lavallée, Melina Stinson, Raphaele Thiriet Live Music and composition: Ian Jarvis Video: Kyle Thomas Scenography: Mark Lawes and David-Alexandre Chabot Lighting Design: David-Alexandre Chabot Technical Director: Jon Cleveland
This is one of the 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter program.
With this $35M investment, the Council supports the creation and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada.
In Module 3 of the Supernova Trilogy we watch the final fall of Wile E Coyote.
The last fall of Wile E Coyote is situated somewhere between the image and the shadow.
And on the screen, the performers are trapped and interrogated in a series of “assessments” inciting their fears and paranoia in a “post-truth” world where the camera is the only witness.

“A mediation through dance, music, and in particular body language and movement that transcends the limitations of verbal language.” Brad Simm, Beatroute Magazine “Supernova Trilogy invites the spectator as an object, subject, and actor of the research, to evaluate his own journey in life.” Natacha Margotteau, Mouvement Magazine “A primal scream, animal, enraged, nostalgic and despaired.
A call to awaken consciousness.” Natalie Geilibert, Kulte “The juxtaposition of the suburban and the solitude…is stunning and moving” Stephen Hunt, Calgary Herald “Haunting, catastrophic, addicting — this performance covers all bases.” Lifestyle Magazine “ I very much hope that this group of artists can continue their difficult while not commercial way of theatrical work in the future.
