Foudres is the last part of what Canadian Dave St-Pierre calls his triology on love, following on from La pornographie des ames, and Un peu de tendresse bordel de merde!, created in 2004 and 2006 respectively. The three works were programmed on alternate days at the Theatre de la Ville, and Foudres is arguably the least dreary of the three.
