ÉDITO 2012

Pursuing the adventure of our travels at the frontier of reality and fiction, the artists invited to EIM 2012 are investing new playgrounds: the Bassin Bonsecours and Hangar 16 in the Old Port of Montréal, Usine C, and lastly, la promenade des Artistes of the Quartier des Spectacles.

What are they playing at?

At putting on hold our normality as City Dwellers.

 Thanks, notably, to the characters of the Famille Sombre (La Méta-Carpe company), exhibited to passers-by in their container-habitat ; the swarms of 20,000 bees/actrices of a philosophical and poetic ode in La Sagesse des Abeilles (Jean Lambert-wild and Michel Onfray); the haven of peace built 20 feet high for you at the heart of the city with Forêt (Phil Allard and Justin Duchesneau); the trees of Proximités Variables (Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe) with which you will dance; the vegetables put to music in Épicerie Musicale (Jérôme Minière and Marie-Pierre Normand) with the complicity of 20 composers; or Human Playground’s choreographed slices of life as well as those of Ex Nihilo…

All invite you to join in this conversation where the imaginary sets the tempo between the places, the elements, and the living.

In our atomized urbanity, the game is well worth the candle.

Don’t miss Arts Without Borders 2012.
