Un. Deux. Trois.

Four hours. Three shows. Two intermissions. One unforgettable french-canadian theatrical experience.




« Masterful. […] Epic. […] It is to be said that the trance that we feel, when leaving the theatre, is well worth it. » – Annie Dubé, mattv (Translated from French)


“The idea that a quête d’identité is nothing more than a narcissistic journey […] is also sunk in this occasionally, frustrating, mostly fascinating piece of theatre.” – J. Kelly Nestruck, Global Mail


« This is an excessively funny show. […] At times very touching […] Intelligent. » – Claudine Hébert, ICI Première, Dessine-moi un matin (Translated from French)




For his very first programme as artistic director of the Théâtre français du Centre national des Arts in Ottawa, Mani Soleymanlou surrounds himself by about forty performers coming from the 4 corners of French Canada to revisit the plays UN., DEUX. and TROIS., which he brings together this time into one single performance entitled Un. Deux. Trois.


It’s no secret: Mani Soleymanlou likes numbers. After having presented plays ranging from the solo Un to the podcast Probablement Onze – and passing by Zéro –, he returns to UN. DEUX. TROIS., his grand symphony about identity. Presented in Montréal in 2014 and in Paris in 2017, the performance, which previously plunged into first Quebec then French identity, looks this time at French Canada. Surrounding himself with an all-new cast from different horizons, the actor and producer builds with them a choral work, which is poignant and festive.


Forty solitudes. Forty extended hands. Forty lives speaking for contemporary Canada. A performance that dares to do all of this, with neither speeches nor posters, neither rhetoric nor empty phrases. To revisit our heritage, question what we in turn we will leave behind and go beyond clichés. To make a voice with many accents resound. To go forward together and build bridges over the ever-widening chasms.


So that in essence, the « I » serve the « We ». Because finally, what does it mean to be francophone in Canada?
