Ne meurs pas tout de suite on nous regarde at Tangente
A twist on the traditional story of Adam and Eve, this dance takes place in a weird post-apocalyptic world, where L and M are possibly the last two human beings left on earth. With carefree oblivion they reinvent chaos and flirt with kinesthetic existentialism. A beautiful piece and a must see for lovers of dance.

Richard III by Metachroma Theatre

“Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York.” – Richard III

One of Shakespeare’s timeless tragedies, the story of Richard III is both horrific and captivating. Ever the outsider, Richard struggles to win the monarchy, foregoing all consequences and committing terrible deeds. A psychological journey of a man shunned from society for his deformed appearance, Richard III is a play of schemes, tyranny and evil. Complete with Concordian veterans Jamie Robinson, Quincy Armorer, Jimmy Blais and director Joel Miller, this inaugural piece, with the generous support of The Segal Centre for the Performing Arts, is sure to entertain.

Richard III runs from Sept. 19 to 30 at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts Studio, 5170 Côte-Ste-Catherine Rd.
