Set in modern-day Montréal, C'est Moi explores the collision of the past as it meets the present. Performance by Montréal native Jenny Brizard evokes the return of a ghostly figure, Marie-Josèph Angélique, a runaway slave in 18th century New France (Québec). She was accused of setting a fire in Vieux Montréal and subsequently tortured and hanged. As it prepared to celebrate its 375th anniversary, the City of Montréal removed a plaque that stated a declaration against racial discrimination, thus posing the question, "How much of our past is erased in the restoration of history?"
