Balado #4 — Fait Maison
Listen on AXENÉO7’s website.
PERF (Ré)agir / (Re)act, the third edition of AXENÉO7 biennial performance program, is presented from September 22 to October 23 in collaboration with the production centre DAÏMÔN, Fait Maison (Thomas Grondin et Anna Khimasia), Katie Ward Company and the Beeldend Danse Theater in the Netherlands.
PERF focuses on the notion of encounter — inherent to performative practices — and presents every Wednesday of the month the proposals of artists, authors, curators, researchers, theorists, cultural workers and organizations gathered in the framework of a multidisciplinary action art event.
AXENÉO7, in collaboration with Fait Maison, has also produced a series of podcasts, talking with over a dozen artists about performance that will broadcast before the festival on Radio-Hull.
Participants: Thomas Grondin, Anna Khimasia and Jean-Michel Quirion.
Initiated by Thomas Grondin in his home in Gatineau, Quebec in August 2005, Fait Maison was a party, a laboratory and a performance space. On selected evenings a few times a year an audience was invited to a party in which performances happened at different moments and spaces in and around Grondin’s home from the garden, to the kitchen, to the basement and even the bathroom. Over the years Fait Maison incorporated a range of performance artists, both emerging and established, as well as local, national and international and has had events at various alternative locations including private houses, an exhibition at G101 in 2009 and most recently at L’Imagier in Aylmer in 2017.
