MAI (Montreal, arts interculturels)
This is a place that brings the essence of diversity to public attention. From dance to theatre, from interdisciplinary arts to media arts, by way of visual arts and music, MAI ensures a whole range of creative discovery of artists from abroad who are now an integral part of our cultural and artistic landscape. An absolute must! So till October 17 you can see the exhibition “Le corps sans organes,” which brings together three works by Payam Mofidi and Ila Firouzabadi that convey their anxiety in the face of the violence of today’s world. And for a particularly original experience, “Unwrapping Culture” on October 23 and 24 will reveal some surprising choreography, not devoid of humour, in which contemporary dance meets Traditional Thai dance. This is a creation by the Philippino-Canadian Alvin Erasga Tolentino and the Thai Pichet Klunchun.
