September 4 – October 27, 2018 Curators: Heather Igloliorte, Amy Prouty and Charissa von Harringa Asinnajaq, Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, Jade Nasogaluak Carpenter, Carola Grahn, Marja Helander, Sonya Kelliher-Combs, Joar Nango, Taqralik Partridge, Barry Pottle, Inuuteq Storch, Couzyn van Heuvelen, Allison Akootchook Warden Among All These Tundras, a title taken from the poem ‘My Heart is in My Home’ by famed Sámi writer Nils-Aslak Valkeapää, features contemporary art by Indigenous artists from around the circumpolar world. Together, their works politically and poetically express current Arctic concerns towards land, language, sovereignty and resurgence. Artists from throughout the circumpolar north share kinship with each other and their ancestors, love for their homelands, and respect for the land and its inhabitants. Yet they also share histories of colonialism and experience its ongoing legacies and are united in their desire to protect northern ecologies, languages, peoples and knowledge from the nefarious effects of climate change, encroaching industry and competition. These resistance efforts do not merely express, they give shape to a collective ecology of care, a “decolonial love” (in the words of Leanne Simpson and others) that is both generous and generative. These works invite viewers to contemplate relationships between textual and embodied Indigenous knowledges,…

YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN We are thrilled to be hosting Toronto-based Noh-Wave prog collective Yamantaka // Sonic Titan. Their latest release DIRT (Paper Bag Records, 2018) is the soundtrack to an unreleased Haudenosaunee and Buddhist anime from 1987. It combines Iroquois creation myth, Buddhist principles and classic sci-fi themes to explore the tragic nature of humanity. Their live show is a sensory overload making ample use of make-up, costumes and of course sound to bring audiences into their world. Eliza Kavtion Eliza Kavtion is a Mohawk experimental guitarist. Layering samples over her virtuosic guitar-playing she uses her music to explore issues related to indigenous sovereignty and resistance. A true devotee of the shred – her riffing is as radical as her politics. Drummer John Milchem, rounds…

September 24 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Concordia University H-110, 1455 de Maisonneuve West + Google Map

Director Anand Patwardhan will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.

Admission is by donation ($5-10 suggested). The venue is wheelchair accessible. Please note: as the film is over 4 hours long, this screening will exceptionally start at 6pm. REASON Anand Patwardhan / India / 2018 / 270 ' / Hindi - Marathi - English / English subtitles REASON takes us to a macrocosm - India, the world’s largest democracy. Its eight chapters are a chilling account of how murder and mind control are applied to systematically dismantle secular democracy in a country which once aspired not just to Liberty, Equality and Fraternity, but to lead the post-war world out of its mindless spiral of violence and greed. And yet the battle for Reason is not lost. Even as Brahminism (a priest ordained caste hierarchy that withheld knowledge from the working castes) drapes itself…

Call for Projects – Bouge d’ici 2019

October 11 @ 8:00 am - October 18 @ 11:30 pm
MainLine Theatre, 3997 St-Laurent
Montréal, Québec H2W 1Y4 Canada
+ Google Map

Bouge d’ici is calling for projects for the next edition of the festival, taking place January 10-19 2019. Bouge d'ici was founded in 2009 to support the Montreal dance community, particularly emerging contemporary artists. It was founded as a reaction to the lack of realistic opportunities for emerging choreographers and dancers to present their work in professional contexts. Bouge d’ici provides an opportunity for aspiring and up-and-coming choreographers to remount and re-work choreographic work that has already been presented with the help of a mentor and the support of the Bouge d'ici Dance Festival. Artist are offered two possibilities : submitting a short 10 minute maximum piece (click here for more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/273697126583980/), or submitting a 20-60 minute piece (click here for more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/1875789839135448/). We look forward to learning about your projects!
