Bonjour and welcome to this truly bumper edition of our Québec Culture brochure, complete with our first ever special supplement, the mini Edinburgh Edition 2019.

© Adrian Morillo

I am always humbled by the vast display of talent we get to celebrate in these pages and grateful to the local venues and presenters who select them and make it possible.

So thank you, partners and friends, for your continued interest and support in Québec culture. Please continue to share with us your projects and ideas so that we may help realise them. I also invite you to check out our two international cultural cooperation call for projects (opposite page) and consider the possibility of attending one of Québec’s amazing Festivals & Events (see pages 18-19) to discover even more artists who just need to be brought to these shores. Culture needs to cross borders, cross fertilise, open dialogues, create opportunities and lead to better mutual understanding.

This August, the Québec in Edinburgh programme spreads across the Fringe, International and Book festivals, features no less than three new circus shows and for the first time this year includes an Indigenous strand showcasing the works of several artists in the field of performing arts and literature. This is truly significant, particularly when one remembers that Québec was first inhabited and remains home to eleven indigenous nations whose distinct cultures, both resolutely modern yet profoundly anchored in traditions, form an integral part of Québec culture and society. As for the main brochure, you will find lots to discover or revisit from Québec. The digital arts offering includes an interactive and uplifting large-scale installation that tunes into international legend Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah at Somerset House, and no less than four shows at Glasgow’s Sonica festival. Meanwhile, Québec dance will reach out across our territory this season, from Sweden to Norway and Finland, Wales to Scotland, and all around England including London, Birmingham and Nottingham. Many of these are the result of programming trips to Québec, some are cooperation projects and all the fruit of longstanding international friendships. We sincerely hope you will get a chance to catch some of these extraordinary shows and exhibits. We also hope to catch up with many of you either here in London or as the team attends various events both in the Nordic Countries including WOMEX in Finland and in the UK including the One Dance UK Re:generations conference, Sonica and of course the Edinburgh festivals among others. See you there! Bonne lecture! Maude Laflamme Director for Culture, Québec Government Office in London

Until 26 August Barbican London, UK Wowing audiences since May, Totem is a fourteenmetre-tall light installation that explores the possibility of an artificial entity developing consciousness. The installation’s sensors scan environmental changes and feed this information to a neural network which then inform the rhythms and pulsing rate of the light. Totem is a commission by the Barbican for the major largescale exhibition AI: More Than Human, an unprecedented survey of creative and scientific developments in Artificial Intelligence. www.barbican.org | www.chrissalter.com

Ballistics

Myriam Bleau is a composer, digital artist and performer based in Montréal. Her work has been presented internationally including in the UK at Sonica (Glasgow) and Cafe Oto (London) and in Sweden at Intonal (Malmö), to name but a few. This is the UK premiere of Ballistics, an audiovisual performance for pendulum interfaces drawing inspiration from popular science fiction and mysticism. An exercise in sonifying sharp movements and pendulum physics, this performance uses digital modular synthesis to reveal a corroded and textural landscape of uneven rhythms. www.brightondigitalfestival.co.uk | www.myriambleau.com

18 – 19 October Watermans Arts Centre London, UK Watermans presents We Are the Progeny of Electricity, a hybrid work by Projet EVA, combining live performance, interactive theatre and electronic art. Using technology in an aesthetic presentation evoking the mind-control experiments the CIA conducted in the 1950s with psychotropic drugs, this project immerses its spectators in an unsettling choreography in order to reprogramme them. www.watermans.org.uk | www.projet-eva.org

Somerset House presents 24/7, a major exhibition inspired by the book of the same title by art critic and essayist Jonathan Crary, exploring the non-stop nature of our modern lives. A host of international contemporary artists and designers will hold a mirror up to a world in which we are sleeping less, and the pull of the screen is disrupting our instincts to daydream and pay attention to the world around us, and each other. The exhibition concludes with a large-scale installation from Montreal-based art and design studio Daily Tous Les Jours, entitled I heard there was a secret chord, where visitors can unite with listeners around the world to hum the chorus of “Hallelujah” by former Montréaler and international legend Leonard Cohen. This interactive and uplifting piece focuses on participation – empowering people to have a place in the stories that are told around them. www.somersethouse.org.uk | www.dailytouslesjours.co

31 October – 6 January The Lighthouse Multidisciplinary composer and media alchemist Navid Navab, in collaboration with Michael Montanaro and the team at Concordia University’s Topological Media Lab (Montréal), present Aquaphoneia, a visual sound installation that transmutes voice into water and water into air.

Phases

Myriam Boucher 2 November Tramway Inspired by natural phenomena, Phases by artist Myriam Boucher, is a live audiovisual performance that explores three phases of water: solid, liquid, and gas. Her sensitive and polymorphic work investigates the intimate dialogue between music, sound and image transforming a transparent, colourless substance into a fantastical, living phenomenon. In one moment, elements of Phases move in synchronisation with waves of sound and, in the next, very fluidly shift from solid to liquid, fragment to flood. Supported by the QC-UK Connections Programme (British Council and Québec Government)

8 November Tramway Multimedia duo Push 1 stop and Wiklow’s Membrane (aka Cadie Desbiens-Desmeules & Michael Dean) merge audiovisual performance with installation art. Inspired by an increasing human presence in virtual environments, the artists respond to this cultural shift by using a generative system to produce sound and three dimensional, volumetric shapes. They playfully manipulate these in real-time, all through a hypnotic haze of rising smoke to further blur the boundaries between the physical and the digital.

8 November Tramway Montréal-based audiovisual artist and composer, Line Katcho’s Immortelle is a visceral live audiovisual performance that binds light and sound in constant, dramatic metamorphosis as she explores shifting relationships between image and music and between humans and our environments. With meticulous attention to detail, she hybridises styles, genres and applied tech methods to craft a prismatic, enveloping electroacoustic-techno composition and visual landscape. www.sonic-a.co.uk | www.tramway.org | www.navidnavab.net www.michaelmontanaro.com | www.push1stop.com | www.soundcloud.com/wiklow www. myriamboucher.com | www.soundcloud.com/linekatcho

Renowned ambassadors of la Francophonie, Le Vent du Nord is also acknowledged as a key player in Québec’s traditional folk music revival. They have racked up several prestigious awards and more than 1800 performances since the group’s founding in 2002. www.leventdunord.com

Pottery © Ebru Yildiz

15 August – 6 November Various venues in the UK and Iceland (see listings p. 24-25 or visit website) Young international Montréal-based band Pottery are making some big waves. Their sound is a thrillingly ramshackle mix of post-punk, pop and dance, and their debut single Hank Williams shows exactly what they’re about: a wiry, psychedelic garage-punk/new wave hybrid. You really need to see them live to get the full experience – their shows are electrifyingly visceral and gut-punching, like a brilliant mix of Talking Heads, Oh Sees, and Devo. www.pottery.bandcamp.com

Les Poules à Colin 20 August – 8 September Various venues in the UK and Denmark (see listings p. 24-25 or visit website) Les Poules à Colin dig up Québec’s deep, dark roots and add electrifying energy and beguiling modesty for a mind-blowing trad-folk groove. The group’s sound is a seamless blend of their strong folk upbringing and North American influences that range from old-time to jazz, with some provocative and moody effects. The band are back after the success of their last Danish tour earlier this year. www.lespoulesacolin.com

The intricate, intimate music she performs is beautifully disjointed and turns emotional turmoil into transcendent pop. Deland released her debut album in 2016 and has taken huge leaps forward since as she deftly moves from Americana-tinged indie rock to folk and woozy synth balladry. www.endoftheroadfestival.com | www.helenadeland.com

The pianist virtuoso and recipient of eleven Grammy Award Nominations, Marc-André Hamelin has developed a well-founded reputation for originality of programming allied to complete technical command. Here he champions the Third Sonata (1917) by the neglected Russian composer Samuil Feinberg, enclosing it with Skryabin’s Fantasie (1900) and Prokofiev’s miniatures (1912-14).

Wiser and Dzierzon used Franz Schubert’s beautiful String Quartet No.14 composed in 1824, also known as Death and the Maiden, as inspiration to create a 45-minute piece performed by North East of England dance company Fertile Ground. The result is a dramatic and lyrical piece which explores the eternal quest for youth and immortality and where movement and live music combine as a metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life. www.fertileground.org.uk | www.concertsvoxpopuli.com

6 – 9 November Iceland Airwaves Reykjavik, Iceland One of the rare women in the neoclassical world, Alexandra Stréliski creates music that enthralls listeners, filling their minds with rich, cinematic images. Growing up between Paris and Montréal, she made her debut with the 2010 album Pianoscope, but the general public discovered her via JeanMarc Vallée’s films Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and Demolition (2016) and, more recently, the trailer of the acclaimed HBO series Big Little Lies (2017). Building on this momentum, the composer made her next artistic statement with the album Inscape, published in 2018 by Secret City Records. Now in its 21st edition, Iceland Airwaves is regarded as one of the world’s foremost music festivals for emerging artists from all genres. The festival plays host to the best local artists as well as talents from all around the world. www.icelandairwaves.is | www.alexandrastreliski.com

Half Moon Run 6 – 9 November Various venues in the UK (see listings p. 24-25 or visit website) The word everyone comes back to when describing Montréal indie-rockers Half Moon Run is “complex”. Whether they’re billed as dreamy alt-pop, bucolic, altfolk or psychedelic indie rock, the four multi-instrumentalists (Devon Portielje, Conneer Molander, Dylan Phillips, Isaac Symonds) have built their name on cerebral, acrobatic arrangements and harmonies that lilt prettily until they turn feral. Following the success of their two previous records, their third album is due out this autumn. www.halfmoonrun.com

Michel says: ‘CUTLASS SPRING is what sex might mean to me right now. I will roam inside a question: How might I locate my sexual identity within a multitude of complimentary and seemingly contradictory identities – as a performer, as a mother, as a daughter, as a lover, as a stranger’. www.movinginnovember.fi | www.dana-michel.com

Pursuing a successful West End career for the past 20 years, Alex Gaumond stars in this new production by Québécois Adam Blanshay. You are invited to take a seat at the table for a riotously funny evening that questions if what we’re called reflects who we truly are. A startling revelation about the name chosen for a new child sparks an argument which spirals hysterically out of control. Egos, childish resentment and unspoken feelings are relentlessly and hilariously exposed for the first time. Adapted by British theatre director, writer and translator Jeremy Sams from award-winning French film and stage sensation Le Prénom, What’s in a Name? is a masterpiece of comedy. www.adamblanshay.com | www.alexgaumond.com
