Voices of the Quartier des spectacles
Voices of the Quartier des Spectacles is a window on the people and places that make Montreal’s cultural heart beat. From festivals to performance venues, from restaurants to avant-garde art. Every week, you’re invited to discover the city’s liveliest square kilometre!
Last year, during the inaugural year of Les Jardins Gamelin, the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership wanted Montrealers to embrace a neglected public space and give them a desire to keep coming back, while co-existing peacefully with the space’s long-time users.
There are two sides to electronic music: the DJs who play it from behind their turntables, and the people who make it. You’ll find the second group at MUTEK, the international festival of digital creation and electronic music.
Urbanites will have the chance to immerse themselves in the dance of the river drivers – the workers who left their mark on Quebec’s history by floating timber down the province’s rivers. Until May 29, hundreds of logs will form an art installation on Sainte-Catherine St.
Would you like to control the fountain in the Place des Festivals? Well, your wish is about to come true! From May 5 to 29, thanks to the Maëstro installation, you can conduct an orchestra on well-known classical pieces.
They’ve become a true Montreal icon. Just as we eagerly await the return of hot summer days or hockey in the fall, 21 Balançoires (21 Swings) trigger our thirst for spring and the chance to be part of the installation’s beautiful music.
If you’re under the impression that the Digital Spring is a geeks-only affair, think again. The event is now in its third year, and it’s about much more than pure technology: it presents a vision of digital life in all its forms.
You love Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando, or are inspired by fashion designer Alexander McQueen and conductor Herbert Von Karajan. You’re intrigued by Hollywood’s era of censorship, the art of graffiti or you want to discover the man who dreamt up James Bond.
Black people have a long history in Quebec. In fact, it is just as long as the one of white Europeans in America. For the 25th February in a row, Black History Month celebrates a rich heritage through music, film, theatre and thematic exhibitions.
