4.48 Psychose, La Chapelle theatre

From January 27 to February 6, 2016

Théâtre La Chapelle, 3700 rue Saint-Dominique

Exploring the theme of despair and suicide, this explosive and very dense work was the last play written by young British playwright Sarah Kane (1971-1999). This is a highly demanding script for any actor taking on the role, in this case the fabulous Sophie Cadieux. Staged by Florent Siaud, a young director establishing himself more and more on the Montreal scene, and translated by none other than Guillaume Corbeil, this new adaptation is bound to be one of the high points of this theatre season.

Les Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois

This year marks the 34th edition of this sought-after event for Quebec cinema enthusiasts; an occasion all the more exciting if, like me, you missed last year’s films for lack of time, in particular those which didn’t stay long at the box office. And what a lavish programme to look forward to: 350 screenings, 130 premieres and some 30 or so free events. Be on the lookout for complete programming details to be unveiled in early February.

Nuit Blanche

February 27, 2016

Partout à Montréal

Though it may be somewhat conventional, for me Nuit Blanche is a must. The closing event of the MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE festival, it is the perfect occasion to see Montreal in wintertime from a new perspective. In the space of a single, slightly magical night, all types of art forms comingle, adding to the warmth of our beautiful city and Montrealers alike. This night full of discoveries for all will take place on Saturday, February 27th. With more than 200 indoor and outdoor activities to choose from, including exhibits, performances, special installations and underground art, night-owls can lose themselves meandering haphazardly or wherever their fancy and curiosity may take them.
