There are niches, and then there is Montreal-based interdisciplinary artist Céline B. La Terreur. If anyone were to write the best Quebecois rock opera, it would be her.

So when Stefan St-Laurent, curator of the 4th Biennale of Performing Art of Rouyn-Noranda, asked her if she would like to participate in this year’s biennale’s theme of rock opera she jumped on the chance. With an interest in visual arts and the leader of an electronic alternative rock band she was both flattered and a little surprised to be invited.

“I was surprised rock opera was even known outside of Quebec and France, because I think it’s a very francophone thing,” says Terrreur. “I didn’t even think that kind of tacky project would be heard of outside of Quebec.”
