The greatest emotions sometimes arise from the most minimalist representations in terms of technical and human means. Personally, I was really impressed by the talent of Francis Monty and Alexandre Leroux, from the Théâtre de la Pire Espèce, a theatre company from Quebec, who manage with almost nothing (toy cars, cotton, Russian dolls or a small wooden house, etc.) to take the audience on a journey through it.
