Produced by: Confabulation / Featuring: Matt Goldberg and five guest storytellers

ONE NIGHT ONLY!!
Part dance show, part rock concert, and part hallucination, Idiot is the second of a trilogy of absurd creations inspired by the legendary American musician: Iggy Pop.
“It’s raw, it’s direct, it’s brutal, and it’s beautiful. Helen Simard manages to both move us and make us laugh with Idiot. It makes you want to fall back into Pop’s discography, and to reinvent the world in your own fashion.”
- Le Canal Auditif

“Fine performances ... beyond reproach.” – Westmount Mag
STROBE LIGHTS AND NUDITY
