Got too many teeth? Care to have one knocked out by a sexy dame in red stilettos? Blood Ballet Cabaret can help. Fueled by bourbon,leather and lust the Burlesque dancers of Blood Ballet are the spiciest hell kittens to crawl out Satan’s grip. Teamed with short comedy skits born from the minds of Montreal’s most deranged creatures of the night it’s fun for the whole fucked up family.

KLLOCHAR, c’est une jeune femme morte qui chuchote à nos oreilles; c’est aussi un mot en albanais qui veut dire  « loser ou perdant ». Kllochar, c’est la révolution de trois gars qui ne veulent pas tourner en rond; c’est aussi la franchise de dire c’qu’ils pensent tout bas. C’est une île en Crystal où les courants d’air sont gratuits mais aussi, Kllochar, c’est d’la musique qui passe par le 4 pour revenir au 1 (voir la charte des accords du livre : Comment signer un pacte avec le diable dans le domaine de l’idole, chapitre 3 : la musique). Dans l’fond, Kllochar c’est Mathieu aux cris et à la guitare, Frank à la basse et aux arrangements et Alex au charleston et à la grosse caisse.

Literacy is the story of a young Russian immigrant told in letters and text-messages sent by the main protagonist to her most intimate friends, since the departure from her home country. Using epistolary genre the performance creates the space of intimate communication where personal changes are documented and deepest anxieties are revealed. The project searches for the ways of transgressing the limits of public enunciation and returning to the free circulation of intimate expression based on unity, continuity and enchantment of emotional experiences.

Il est merveilleux de constater l’immensité et l’incroyable force qui régit tout ce qui est. Mais surtout, c’est encore plus fou de voir toute cette magie au quotidien qui trottine sur un trottoir, qui se balance au gré du vent ou qui tombe simplement de nulle part. Je m’appelle Marianne… et je chante ces grandes petites choses.

Psyn Langwage

PsynLangwage is a revolution in the Montreal Hip-Hop scene.

STORY: Three brothers (DaDestroya, Negrosapien and HemmRage) fed up with the direction that Hip-Hop music was taking, decided to band together and destroy everything in their path.

When people hear about Hip-Hop, they come to expect talk of jewelery, guns and other cheap tricks. PsynLangwage is here to change that. They mix Comedy, Crowd Participation and Paper Bag Heads to bring performing back to the art form.

Tired of bling-music? Do you want Change? Ready to put that bag over your head?

We think you’re ready to PSYN UP!
