Announcing IREDEA - a dance rock opera inspired by Philip K. Dick

Start Date: Tue 15 Apr, 2014
End Date: Thu 31 Jul, 2014

Artistic Events

Futuristic, electric, & evocative.

Watch our project video here:

IREDEA is a dance rock opera inspired by the writer Philip K. Dick's visions of the future. In the story, the planet is destroyed by an apocalypse. The few remaining faces of humanity are at war with each other to define a new morality. Mysterious characters are at the centre of this struggle. One is an artist in a paralyzed body. Another is brilliant, cold, and manipulative. The third is wise but destitute and desperate.

Re-interpreting, remixing or covering are rhetorical conventions in some performing art forms such as music or theatre where the same raw material can be radically re-shaped by a new director, musician or conductor. What happens if we apply the same principle to dance?

Studio 303's REMIX project presents two original short works by Stéphanie Fromentin and Nancy Gloutnez alongside their remixed versions by Adam Kinner and Sarah Bronsard, respectively. Short discussion with artists will follow.

In her piece Tracking Time, Stéphanie Fromentin interacts with the audience and uses its contribution as creation material. It is a journey for both the performer and the spectator, turned collaborator.
Adam Kinner is an interdisciplinary creator whose music, dance and performance works utilize text as a unifying thread. He will remix Stephanie Fromentin's Tracking Time. The mobile subjects - time and presence - lend themselves to be worked with from different angles thereby further fostering the morphing of this work.

Originally choreographed by Nancy Gloutnez, Les Mioles evolved from deep rhythmic research with four dancers where the public is guided through different ways of listening.
Sarah Bronsard is a choreographer with a strong background in video, visual art and flamenco. Her work has a natural affinity and resonance with Nancy Gloutnez's contemporary gigue practice. Both artists deconstruct and reinterpret traditional rhythmic dance forms and musicality, via radically different mediums and aesthetics.

Montreal Infringement Festival 2014

Mon 07 Apr, 2014 - Calls for Submissions

For its 10th anniversary, the Montreal infringement festival is asking you to MAKE SOME NOISE!

Montreal culture is under threat like never before! New laws against “noise” are putting small arts venues at risk with fines in the thousands of dollars! Already several small venues have been targeted and are at risk of going bankrupt. The new mayor has also turned a blind eye to these abuses and has no plan in place to protect Montreal’s culture. A grassroots organization called Save The Plateau has sprung up to challenge the abusive anti-noise laws. The infringement festival supports Save The Plateau and shares the same pro-artist, anti-gentrification objectives.
