If Refusal Had a Form
Speech, poetry and performances followed by an open mic
Ginkgo café & bar, 308 Ste-Catherine East Street
In French and English
Guests: Oana Avasilichioaei, Sarah Chouinard-Poirier, Benoit Jutras, Soleil Launière, France Théoret
Within the spirit of the manifesto, an evening during which speech, poetry and performance art will bring about multiple forms of refusal will take place. Poets France Théoret, Benoit Jutras and Oana Avasilichioaei, multidisciplinary artist Soleil Launière and performer Sarah Chouinard-Poirier will be offering thought-provoking texts and actions to start the night. At the beginning of the exhibition, a call for contributions to the open mic will be disseminated, inviting local artists and intellectuals to renew with forms of negation. In opposition to the atmosphere of general agreement of our times, this event will offer resistance to global consensus.
