Winsor and Gertie
The theatrical production, Winsor and Gertie, introduces McCay to new audiences, showcases his talent as an illustrator, and highlights the significant contribution of variety shows to the development of early animation. Part public reading, part performance, this 55-minute, two-character presentation full of humour and wit includes the spectacular reconstruction of Gertie, which was undertaken by the Cinémathèque québécoise and the National Film Board of Canada, in collaboration with the University of Notre Dame in the United States. Featuring Stéphane Crête (Winsor McCay) and Sébastien René (Robert, the son of Winsor McCay). Musical composition and piano accompaniment : Gabriel Thibaudeau.
