Au lendemain de la pendaison de Louis Riel en 1885, Gabriel Dumont, leader de la résistance métisse et chasseur de bisons, prend la fuite et se réfugie aux États-Unis. Il y est recruté par Buffalo Bill, figure mythique reconnue pour ses Wild West Shows, des spectacles itinérants qui représentent la vie du Far West. Toute sa vie, Dumont rêvera de raconter, dans un spectacle à grand déploiement, la lutte des Métis pour la reconnaissance de leurs droits. OEuvre dramatique joyeusement anachronique, Le Wild West Show de Gabriel Dumont - coécrit par dix auteurs et autrices autochtones et allochtones - donne vie au vieux rêve de Dumont en mettant en scène les événements qui ont mené à la résistance du Nord-Ouest. Publié en coédition avec Talonbooks (Vancouver), l'ouvrage contient deux versions, à dominante française et anglaise. Il comprend aussi des visuels, une introduction et un dossier permettant de contextualiser la pièce. -- In 1885, following the hanging of his friend Louis Riel, Métis Resistance leader and bison hunter Gabriel Dumont fled to the United States. There he was recruited by the legendary Buffalo Bill, founder of Buffalo Bill's Wild West, a gigantic outdoor travelling show that re-enacted life in the American West. Dumont dreamed of putting together a similar show to tell the story of the struggle of the Métis to reclaim their rights. The creative team behind Gabriel Dumont's Wild West Show - including ten authors, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, French- and English-speaking men and women - brings Dumont's dream to life in a captivating, joyously anachronistic saga with a rodeo vibe. Co-published with Prise de parole (Sudbury), the work consists of two versions, one predominantly in English and the other predominantly in French.
