With the world increasingly full of misinformation, as meaningless images of brutality bombard our retinas across all platforms, the courage to be kind is increasingly essential. Choreographed by George Stamosin collaboration with Karla Etienne and Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, ONE KIND FAVOR is an exploration of how kindness can be embodied, sometimes with grace, sometimes failing despite good intentions.

MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

Red(z) Maid(z) is situated within a residential school where 2-spirited Anishinaabe children use their queer imaginations to play out the sadistic abuse they face daily. Their game transforms from innocent role-playing to a plot for murder.

Award-winning theatre makers Waawaate Fobister and Jesse Stong use absurdism, physicality, and play to draw out Genet’s themes of servitude, oppression, and revenge within Turtle Island’s lineage of colonial violence.

Presented from March 11th to 14th at the MAI.

Take D Milk, Nah?

Theatre Passe Muraille

|Recurring Event (See all)
Performances from April 2-4
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

Jiv is “Canadian.” And “Indian.” And “Hindu.” And “West Indian.” “Trinidadian,” too. Or maybe he’s just colonized. In Take d Milk, Nah? Parasram blends personal storytelling and ritual to walk through the Hin-do’s and Hin-don’ts at the intersections of these cultures. The show is a refreshingly candid and delightfully funny look at race, religion and nationalism(s): What divides us – and what we’re willing to accept in the desire to belong.

Presented April 2-4 at the MAI.

Sur ce chemin, tu es sûre de te perdre

Diana León

|Recurring Event (See all)
Performances from April 15-16
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

This multidisciplinary solo, somewhere between dance, theatre and music, is a powerful evocation of the pleasure in finding one’s own rhythm, in response to those who surround and inspire us. The work is the fruit of three collaborations between Diana León and emerging creators Paco Ziel, Jeremy Galdeano and Vera Kvarcakova, whose guiding theme is knowledge of the self and the work necessary – amidst social pressures, inner demons and aspirations – to find one’s own voice.

Presented on April 15 & 16 at the MAI.

Performances on April 24 & 25
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

Vancouver based performance trio A Wake of Vultures melds together highfalutin ideas and low-fi aesthetics in their new work, Walking at Night by Myself. They present a world of abstraction, distraction, and overlapping patterns through which we slowly examine the plasticity of human perception and open up to questions of how notions of familiarity, difference, and impressions are constructed.
