The monsters’ theatre
The City of Lille used to be called “Isla” from the Latin “Insula”, and was literally an island surrounded by the Deûle. The Canal Saint-Pierre was one of the numerous canals that encircled the city. Although it is now burried under the ground and hidden from the passers-by’s view, that place seems to have kept within its walls all of the echoes from the past. A mysterious atmosphere emerges, opening the doors of imagination.
“Attracted by that curious mix of history and dreamlike atmosphere, we decided to tell the story of Lille and the Canal as a tale, outlining its history from its creation until its closure. All from the point of view of the monsters which seem to live inside the canal from time immemorial.” Maëva Jacques and Claudia Cortés Espejo
