After last year's success, the witch is back!
« C'est l'heure! Le temps est enfin arrivé. L'heure de vérité a sonné.
Ça fait assez longtemps! 300 ans qu'on attend!
Le temps a passé, coulé, figé. La légende a pris son temps...
Faut rattraper le temps perdu, c'est le temps d'être entendus!
C'est l'heure, c'est maintenant, la scène est revenue.
Il était une fois où l'histoire allait se répéter sans cesse. »
(excerpt of the original text)
Discover a story that has been echoing for a very long time and, this time, will be told through the mouths of those who have not spoken enough. A story from the past, which reflects our thoughts today and which surprisingly reflects certain aspects of our contemporary world: The legend of La Corriveau! In the course of an investigation and a trial of a thousand paces, the many discrepancies and distortions of this woman's tragic story will be brought to life. This story has a broad back... It drags in its wake women by the thousands, murdered women, women pointed at for having spoken, for having dared, for having sung too loudly, for having howled at the moon and danced in the light... The witches of yesterday gave birth to all those who still burn today. The only thing that has changed is the way we die.
