Les Waitress sont tristes
As a country ballad plays, Morrison the cowboy heads off to seek adventure, with his guitar and his faithful friend Ti Mousse by his side. Stopping in at a bar, he finds himself surrounded by beer-slinging waitresses and line dancing. Life is good!
But behind this façade is the reality of a lonely artist : Michael, dreaming of the life of a drifter, has invented a cowboy alter ego to escape the sadness of his days. Ti Mousse is in fact a mechanical cat, and their adventure is a walk on a treadmill.
Les waitress sont tristes is JOE JACK ET JOHN’s second production conceived and directed by a neurodivergent artist. Michael Nimbley, artist-in-residence since 2018 and a regular performer with the company (Mimi, Just fake it, AVALe, Abîmés), has created a wry, contemporary Western that examines and re-examines—the isolation shaping its characters.
At the junction of theatre, dance, and performance, this engaging show invites you to reflect on the nature of the creative process as it explores the concepts of authorship and artistic expression.
