Sandi Armstrong Improv Workshop

Sandi Armstrong has been teaching SUNDAY NIGHT IMPROV workshops at Théâtre Ste Catherine for over ten years now. Based on her extensive improv and acting experience, this class is for actors, artists and anyone who wants to push their communication and performance skills. Her unique approach focuses on the individual’s personality for developing simple physical and emotional skills which are valuable both on and off the stage. You will learn the art of storytelling, stagecraft, being in the moment, and finding your voice.

Nerd Nite

Tuesday October 28th, 7PM to 9PM

Nerd Nite is like seeing three TED talks, except the talks are modest about being world-changing ideas and you may or may not be drinking beer. The franchise of Nerd Nite had its inception in New York City and has since spread to the order of one-hundred cities all over the world. Montreal was not one of them… until now! Nerd Nite will hopefully become a monthly event, but that’s contingent upon the success of this premiere. The three speakers who will be kicking off Nerd Nite Montreal are Peter Hartman, who will be talking about how science isn’t at conflict with religion like we think it is; Najmeh Khalili-Mahani, who will be talking about how our brains respond to stress; and Natalie Zina Walschots, who will be talking about the ways that video games resist critique as pieces of art. Between talks, meet fellow nerds and answer trivia questions!

Art Up! by Béluga @ TSC // Dave Biddle // Finissage

Tuesday February 17th, 6 to 9PM – FREE

If all art is artifice, Dave Biddle’s work is an act of authenticity. Transparent in its appropriation of photographic source material and containing behind-the-scenes film stills from major motion pictures, he paints on canvases that are almost ironic in their scale. His animations are the story of their own existence, as is the gradual development of this exhibit. As he builds his animations in real time, the final “cells” of those works will be displayed as artifact, leading up to a public screening on February 17th.

Much Ado About Nothing

November 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 2014

Presented by Raise the Stakes Theatre and Jubilee Theatre

Shakespeare’s classic comedy, is a joyous celebration abundant with romance, sparring wits, deception, and misunderstanding. It centers on young Hero and Claudio, who become immediately enraptured with each other when the men return victorious from war. Benedick and Beatrice, on the other hand, vow to never marry and instead protest their disdain for one another while engaging in a heated battle of wits. The plot thickens when disguises are assumed, identities are mistaken, and the sanctity of love is called into question.

HMZ Project Album Launch – La Préface

Thursday September 4th, 9:00PM

La Préface is the first album of HMZ project and is the result of 7 years of collaboration. It proposes a musical journey that reflects the very
own course of the two musicians. Starting with lyrical and organic pieces with piano and voice only, the album develops into a wider presence of electronic experimentation gradually replacing the piano completely. Ma-Au creates ambitious universes and musical scenery, always delivered with a nostalgic and urgent dexterity. Zéa’s sinuous and tormented texts respond perfectly alongside, carried by a fragile, mesmerizing and sensual voice.
