Le show sur l'effondrement qui n'aura pas lieu
Bureau de l'APA
The performance Le show sur L'Effondrement qui n'aura pas lieu will take place at AXENÉO7 on Wednesday, November 2, 2022, at 7:30PM.
This performance arose from a series of imponderables and accidents, in the image of the Bureau de l’APA's work. Following the plot of the artist's book L’Effondrement: compte-rendu by Stéphanie Béliveau and Laurence Brunelle-Côté, Le show sur L’Effondrement qui n’aura pas lieu is a group performance based on a text by Alain-Martin Richard, who kept a journal for several months around the idea of our civilization's collapse, but also about all our daily collapses. This is a hybrid stage performance in which the text is put under tension in the space by way of poetic actions.
