The 10 cultural events that will make 2022
Émilie Monnet, Les Louanges, Charlotte Le Bon, Xavier Dolan, Monia Chokri and Jean-Michel Blais.
Because we need comfort more than ever, here are the outings and shows we can't wait to discover in this new year.
More than three years after La nuit est une panthère , Vincent Roberge, alias Les Louanges, is back with a second album. The first excerpts Pigeons , Chaussée and What are you doing to me set the tone, suave and melancholy, of this set of fifteen pieces. Fingers crossed very hard that the presentation of Crash to the Montreal public scheduled for May 19 at MTelus can take place.
Release scheduled for January 21.
The dark period which has lasted for almost two years allowed Jean-Michel Blais to immerse himself in the heart of improvisation and creation. And the outcome will only be more beautiful with the imminent birth of aubades , for which the composer and pianist surrounded himself with twelve musicians. The tracks passepied , murmures and soft already suggest a precious fourth album.
Release scheduled for the 4th February.
Marguerite: the fire
Interdisciplinary artist Émilie Monnet presents a triad of works dedicated to Marguerite Duplessis, this Native slave from New France who was one of the first to fight for her freedom. Accompanied by a podcast and a sound tour, the documentary-like show highlights this thirst for justice too often overlooked.
Cultural event planned from March 15 to April 2, 2022 at Espace GO.

At night where Laurier Gaudreault woke up
Xavier Dolan's first fiction series is a new adaptation of a work by playwright Michel Marc Bouchard, nearly ten years later Tom at the farm . In addition to directing and playing a role in it, the filmmaker also signs the screenplay for this psychological thriller that deals with family relationships, death, bereavement and addictions. It is an understatement to say that we are impatient to see the five one-hour episodes!

This is how I love you season 2
What did screenwriter François Létourneau and co-directors Jean-François Rivard and Robin Aubert have concocted for us?

And they intend to regain control of their criminal empire led by Huguette, the new kingpin of Sainte-Foy… Remember that the delicious first season was selected at the Berlinale in 2020!
