"The approach of Carbonneau and Dauphinais is brilliant and questions the part of chance in the shaping of our identity."
Luc Boulanger, La Presse
La Messe Basse
"Brilliantly unfolds the strange relationship that binds artificial intelligence and the humanoid."
With an actress on stage and iPhone’s personal assistant, Siri, her only partner, director Maxime Carbonneau and actress Laurence Dauphinais invent a theatre where chance reigns. Dauphinais, one of the first people in Canada created by artificial insemination, quests for her origins using the most famous artificial intelligence as her guide. Through a precise game of question and answer, Dauphinais exposes the bizarre metaphysical dimension of the machine, while blurring the limitations that separate them. Siri is a terrifyingly clever pilgrimage into the mysteries of our own programming.
