First created by and for Mélanie Demers, at the invitation of the Italian festival B-Motion in Bassano, the performance Icône Pop becomes the short film MAMA, directed by Xavier Curnillon. 

Transposed into the bodies of Marc Boivin, Stacey Désilier and Chi Long, the theatrical work dissolves on the screen in an impressionistic play between religious and pop, sacred and profane iconography. The auras of the Virgin Mary and Beyoncé are invited in a striptease all in modesty where the archetypes of the whore, the saint and the mother compete to finally see the eternal figure of the child emerge.
