Place Publique 2016

FILIATIONS - PERFORMANCES SERIE 

Four evenings of performances enliven the Place Publique in order to show the connections between artists, who are invited to select, in turn, the headliners of the next evenings.

For the past 10 years, the Darling Foundry enlivens its Place Publique during the summer with art installations and evenings of performances. Art lovers return year after year, and the general public is often surprised by the propositions made by the Darling Foundry. The 2016 edition presents four nights centered on the theme “filiation”, revealing affinities and influences that nourish each performance community. Initiating the invitations, the Darling Foundry asked artists Michelle Lacombe (Montreal) and Richard Martel (Quebec), two well-known performers in the artistic scenes of Montreal and Quebec, from different generations and with distinct affinities, to kick off the series and the first evening. At the end, each invites a performer whose work they appreciate and that echoes their own practice, to perform the following night, and so on. We want to hear the voices of contributors of the different performance art scenes who know their artist colleagues and in doing so, the Darling Foundry wishes to adopt a non-authoritative stand by sharing the artistic direction and giving the Place Publique its purpose of free and spontaneous speech.
