Make it a date… infinithéâtre wants you to be their special someone this Valentine’s Day
Montreal, February 1st, 2021. In the midst of this curfewed, wintry cold, Infinithéâtre invites all arts lovers to snuggle into their sofas, pour a glass of something divine and join them this Valentine’s Day for FourPlay, a seductive 5 à 7 with music and tantalizing texts by some of Québec’s finest artists. Hosted by the charismatic Ellen David, four playwrights read excerpts from their plays and four musicians serenade with their songs of love.
Creativity can’t be stopped; Season 23 continues in this live, digital performance with two popular Infinithéâtre events shacking up together; a teaser for The Pipeline until theatregoers are welcomed in person, and the annual fundraiser. All proceeds support new Québec play development initiatives for ever-widening audiences.
“In the midst of a season in which cultural activities are understandably limited and people are off in their separate corners, infinithéâtre wants to bring communities together to celebrate and honour our resilient local artists, artisans and businesses,” said new Artistic Director Zach Fraser.
“Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.”
The featured playwrights include Mishka Lavigne, Quebec Writers’ Federation Playwriting Prize (Albumen); Arthur Holden, Write-On-Q! honourable mention (Beloved); Alex Poch-Goldin, Write-On-Q! honourable mention (The Trial of William Shakespeare); and Michaela Di Cesare, offering a sneak-peak into her newest play (Oppression Remedy).
“If music be the food of love, play on.”
Live music includes the smooth hip-hop of Justin Johnson (Just J); suave singer-songwriter Ariel Ridgeway (Faux Chic); Julie Choi, pianist extraordinaire (from King of Canada); and virtuoso violinist Pavel Denisov.
Officiating the loads of door prizes and the silent auction, including theatre tickets, restaurant meals, books, albums, booze, a hotel stay, artwork and floral bouquets, is Canada’s longest-serving Prime Minister (King of Canada’s Brian Dooley) alongside the company’s esteemed AD emeritus (the newly-relaxed Guy Sprung).
