MAY AT HOME

MUSIC

ACCÈS ASIE FESTIVAL

With just a couple of clicks you’ll be in the heart of the Accès Asie Festival’s 25th edition, which will present most of its program online.

An evening of piano, a virtual exhibition and a concert by Mosaïque are just some of the other highlights. At this festival, East and West are closer than ever. (+)

DANCE AND THEATRE

LIFE, LIFE (A SERIES)
Festival TransAmériques

It’s no secret that the FTA’s artistic director is a talented writer. Martin Faucher decided to use his keyboard to bring the event’s 2020 program to life for the festival’s audience, writing a series of pieces steeped in his legendary sensitivity and keen eye for art. Accompany him on a jaunt to Hamburg to see a show by Alain Platel, or to Paris in search of the work of the legendary Peter Brook. Faucher’s impressionistic notebook overflows with fascinating textures and sensations. (+)

VISUAL ARTS

CENTRE DE DESIGN POSTER COLLECTION UQAM

In 1982, the annual exhibition at UQAM’s Centre de design explored Dutch design. A decade later, it featured a series of alternative layouts for Place d’Youville in Quebec City. In other years, the centre has showcased African design, the retro charms of Habitat 67, and much more. Looking back over the last 39 years in design, this virtual poster exhibition presented by the Centre de design also celebrates the creativity of the university’s own artists. (+)

YOUTH

LEARNING WITH THE OSM

Junior loves violin music, and his sister is always thrilled to hear the flute. To give the kids a very special musical day, head to the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal’s education page. Children can see concerts especially for young people in whatever order they like, watch educational videos and test their knowledge with a fun musical quiz. The site also has plenty of educational resources that kids – and adults! – will find stimulating. (+)
