– GUIDED TOUR //Interactive Anti-capitalist Performance
by the Art Ache Collective
Sunday at 1pm at Metro place St. Henri

The Art Ache Collective invites you to a bilingual, interactive, performative guided tour, lasting about 45 minutes. Come reconsider a space via humorous anti-capitalist sketches, then be invited to intervene in the space in order to infiltrate the mechanisms of this highly criticized system. The precise location of the performance will be revealed to you on site.

– A ballad for the brave new world
by the Bird Bone Theatre
Sunday at 12pm. Room 302 of the CEDA
45 minute shadow puppets piece

A hero’s journey through the depths of the whimsical and the political, exploring the darkness and the light of our systemic epidemic of the poverty of the heart. Funny and poignant, suitable for all ages, but not geared specifically to children. Shadow puppets, toy theatre, accordion, dancing, singing, death-defying acts!!

– On arrête tout, on réfléchit et c’est pas triste (French)
by La section québécoise des Esprits solubles
Sunday at 3pm. Room 305 of the CEDA
Theatre performance, 40-45 minutes

Théatre !
Utopie !
On arrête tout : stop ! On arrête les machines, les activités. On garde
tout en état, des fois que ?a serve pour plus tard.
On réfléchit : tout le monde prend le temps de souffler. On se réunit, on
discute, et on décide ensemble de la suite à donner aux choses. Surtout,
surtout, ne pas se précipiter.
Et c’est pas triste : ben, en fait c’est la fête ! Plus de travail
salarié, plus de justice, plus de police : on a autre chose à faire !
