Festival Accès Asie celebrates its 25th edition from April 30 to May 31, 2020 by inviting Montrealers to come out and celebrate the arts and Asian culture! The Festival will be officially launched by our special guest of honor Alanis Obomsawin during the inauguration cocktail where circus entertainment (Ryunosuke Yamazuni, Marina Salonga and Genevieve PM Roy), delicious appetizers, tea tasting, and artistic performances will flow over the course of the evening.
Part of the evening’s festivities will be the opening of the first solo exhibition “The Nocturnes” by the visual artist and dancer Azalia Kaviani. Azalia will also perform a dance duet with choreographer Irem Bekter.
For music, you will be treated to a performance by Aditya Verma and Subir Dev on the sarod and the tabla and a few pieces from Jasmine Xu on the erhu. As well, Hazy Montagne Mystique, Chittakone Baccam's exploratory project, will warm up the soundscape throughout the evening, accompanied by visual and sound artist Claire Lunaire.
Happy Festival to everyone! Free entrance, only by reservation.
