The public is invited to a tour of the exhibition Rebecca Belmore: Facing the Monumental with Émilie Monnet.
At the intersection of theatre, performance and media arts, the practice of Émilie Monnet centres on questions of identity, memory, history and transformation. Her works privilege collaborative processes of creation, and are typically presented as interdisciplinary theatre or immersive performance experiences. As a playwright and director, she is the artist in residence at the Centre du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui in Montréal until 2021. This Time Will Be Different, her most recent installation performance co-created with choreographer Lara Kramer, premiered at Festival TransAmériques this past June. Since 2016, she has been producing Indigenous Contemporary Scene (ICS), a nomadic platform for the presentation of live arts and creative exchanges between Indigenous artists and communities. ICS’s upcoming edition will take place in Edinburgh, Scotland, this coming August. Émilie’s heritage is Anishnaabe (Algonquin) and French, and she currently lives in Tiohtià:ke / Mooniyaang / Montréal. onishka.org
The tour will be held in French.
