Guérilla : unis par le bruit
Nights of freestyle sound and cinematographic performances
Presented by Manif d’art in special collaboration with Le Cercle
Guest curator: Érick d’Orion
The series Guerrillas: United by Sound consists of a reading in sound and moving mages of the theme of Manif d’art 7. Leaving their aesthetic comfort zone, Canadian media artists explore new spheres of creation, offering up highly personal interpretations of the concepts of resistance and community in complex, innovative and uncompromising sound performances in which experiments in sound, both bruitist and minimalist, become a vector of thought.
Initiated by the curator Érick d’Orion, this project is the fruit of a wealth of profound thinking about the different kinds of resistance: historical, physical, political, etc. Each performance gives rise to questions around these concepts and provides audiences with an opportunity to delve deeper into them through discussions with the artists. The series Guérilla: unis par le bruit is thus an invitation to reflect in a setting that goes beyond mere live performance.
Le Marché du Zombie
Saturday May 3rd
At 9:00 pm on the corner of rue du Pont/St-Joseph
Presented by Manif d’art
Les Fermières Obsédées
Eugénie Cliche and Annie Baillargeon (Quebec City, Canada)
Le marché du zombie (Walk Your Talk), a cross between demonstration and festivity, is a performance set to the rhythm of frenzied music. Accompanied for the occasion by performance artist Isabelle Lapierre (active in the collective since 2008), pianist Marie-Hélène Blay (active in the collective since 2008) and tubist Audrey Boivin-Laframboise, the F.O. put body and soul into a sung discourse that will do honour to their aspirations, providing a display of the power struggles behind present-day political and economic issues. Armed with their oversized pompoms, the F.O. invite viewers to join the group and stroll about in this musical comedy inspired by the finest aberrations of our times. At once festive and destabilising, this event is social satire, demonstration and resistance rolled into one.

Pluridisciplinary performance (poetry / music / video)

Presented by La Rotonde, centre chorégraphique contemporain de Québec
NOIRE was born from the remains of lives turned upside-down. Among the debris, two dancers and a cellist maneuver in a universe at times dark yet marked with strength, courage, poetry and light. Making a clever use of everyday objects, Annie Gagnon tries to create surprise through deeply poetic and sensitive works.
