Qubebec show attendance starkly divided along linguistic lines

Wed 01 Oct, 2014 - Spotlight

Slow business in English-language show business? A recent study suggests this might be the case. As the Gazette reports, box office revenues were up last year for French-language music productions, while English-language music productions saw a decline in profits.

So, does this mean that Quebec audiences put their money where their mouth - or, possibly, their mother tongue - is? Interviews with staff at Evenko and L'Agence Spectra suggest the picture might not be so simple. Cyclical touring variations, a big growth in festivals, and the presence of megastars on the touring circuit all play a role. Read the full article for an in-depth explanation.

CABARET TOLLÉ // STUDIO 303

Tue 05 Aug, 2014 - Calls for Submissions

DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 15th 2014

ART VS. STATUS QUO // Mad, rad, tired of being had? On Friday January 30th 2015, Cabaret Tollé returns after its wildly successful inaugural edition last year to present an unconventional evening of visionary tantrums hosted by the unstoppable Peaches Lepage (Jordan Arseneault).

For 2015, Studio 303 will invite 9 RADICALLY UNDISCIPLINED ARTISTS to occupy the Sala Rossa for an evening of the rad, the mad, and the tired-of-being-had.

Can art still stimulate political action? What role can artists and activists play in convincing, seducing, and provoking responses to the political and social status quo? Offering a showcase for work inspired by social causes, rallying cries, demonstrations, teach-ins, die-ins, kiss-ins, we want to see what moves artists to take a stand, and invite our audience to stand with them.
