Performances from September 4-22
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

In this immersive work that circumvents our sense of sight, audience members follow the protagonist through a landscape of emotions and memories in which the intimate becomes tangible. This multisensory experience, developed for a visually-impaired audience, is accessible to all; we are invited, directly and delicately, into a space of discovery and encounter. Montreal-based interdisciplinary artist Audrey-Anne Bouchard has used her impairment as inspiration for developing a new artistic form.

|Recurring Event (See all)
Performances from October 10-13
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

Questions about migrants and borders feed current debates around the world. Conceived for five young dancers from Marrakech, this work by Taoufiq Izeddiou examines the notion of checkpoints, those that are visible as well as barriers within the body itself. Enveloped in a sound mix drawn from both traditional and contemporary Moroccan sources, this fervent quintet strives to make the space their own or create one for themselves if given no other choice. In a society with such tight control over individuals, what is left of intimacy?

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

Hanane is a woman in her 50s who goes for a jog every day in the streets of Beirut, warding off osteoporosis, obesity and depression. As she runs, she revisits her dreams, desires and disillusions. This daily routine has contradictory effects: it stimulates two hormones in her body – dopamine and adrenaline – which are, by turns, destructive and constructive, against the backdrop of a city which destroys in order to build and builds in order to destroy.

|Recurring Event (See all)
Performances from November 7 - 9
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

Created through radical trust in the body, Faith hole choreographs itself through the unconsidered movements that rip through the artist. Going relentlessly forward, always embracing its future iteration, dismissing nostalgic lingerings of “self,” yet exposing the splinters of personhood to the public. In this solo work, Yaffe cultivates a non-transactional exchange between performer and audience, offering himself as an open orifice spilling fleshy histories with unguarded emotion.

|Recurring Event (See all)
Performances from November 28 to 30
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

This dance is a song we sing in order to be together. The song is intentionally simple to open access to even the most musically-timid body. The song needs us to listen to each other, to be sung in search of a semitonal-policality; “how close can we come without consolidating into one-ness?.”

This room is listening to us speak. It captures our whispers and secrets and redistributes them elsewhere and close-by. This floor invites us to lie. This work is almost real. This world we are looking for is not for us.

How can we make a difference in avoiding the very real possibility of a water crisis? In an imaginative and fun way, the play explores the many ways that water impacts our lives and how small changes (and small kids!) and can make a big difference.
