infringement festival

Start Date: Wed 18 Jun, 2014
End Date: Sun 22 Jun, 2014

Artistic Events

The Montreal infringement festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary! Running from June 18 – 22, the Montreal infringement festival offers a variety of performances and cultural resistance: activist musicians, radical performances, metro-busking, burlesque, film screenings, marginalized arts, spoken-word, culture-jamming, a 10th anniversary feast, infringement open mic, and more!

Celebrating Freedom of Expression, activist performances and a broad range of eclectic, independent, and controversial art of all forms, the infringement festival is modelled on the original 1947 Edinburgh Fringe, which was a DIY (do-it-yourself) artistic protest against corporate elitism and exclusion of local artists. Created in Montreal in 2004 after artists were kicked out of the Saint-Ambroise Fringe Festival™, the infringement festival now exists in Brooklyn, Buffalo, Hamilton and Montreal.

At the infringement festival, artists and audiences of all backgrounds are invited to reclaim culture by creating a charged environment where people come together to take chances, push boundaries, explore uncharted territory, and to do so without corporate interference or having to pay any fees. Authentic and underground, the infringement festival welcomes you experience the arts without the corporate interference!

AUTHENTIC MOVEMENT: THE ART OF LISTENING – TEDI TAFEL (MTL)

Thu 29 May, 2014 - Workshops

June 16-20, 2014 • 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Mon-Fri)
$100 / Open to artists of all disciplines / Bilingual teacher

”Wonderful! Much gratitude!” – Leyla Demir, 2012

Authentic Movement is a practice rooted in expressive dance, Jungian psychology and eastern thought that look to the body as source and inspiration. This workshop offers an introduction to the practice as it relates to the creative process, to that part of making that requires an open, non-judgmental awareness and a willingness to stay in the unknown. Leaving aside for the time being our desire to invent, to direct, to be creative, we learn instead to listen and allow, paying attention to what our body is asking of us, to what it has to say in the moment.
