ATELIERS C&D, CANADIAN WAR MUSEUM, 1 VIMY PLACE, ottawa

A pair of twin sisters welcome you to the Returns Department. On their conveyor belt, a parade of objects, manufacturing errors, and dysfunctional accessories appear. Labouring with love, the twins handle complaints like boxes of candy. Little by little, the temptation to play with the merchandise before them takes hold, the objects themselves play some tricks of their own! 

Combining physical theater, circus, visual arts and puppetry, Returns Department is a playful look behind the scenes of a production line.

This is a bilingual (French/English) production.
