Alternate time frames. Uchronies, parallel worlds and retrofuturism

A three-day symposium exploring three forms of alternative temporalities that are uchronies, parallel worlds and retrofuturism…Having known earlier, the author of his lines would have taken time off to attend all the programming!

“As the solidity of reality crumbles and time appears less and less linear, as the relationship to the past, present and future becomes uncertain, the imaginary becomes the ideal interface for apprehending it, and the various forms of contemporary fiction and representation offer it a perfect support”, can we read in the description of the event announced on Facebook.

Not sure I understood everything, but this conference presented at UQAM – and on Zoom – looks really complete! In addition, it will be accompanied by a series of screenings at the Cinémathèque québécoise, an exhibition and a podcast. 

To consult the program and for more information on the conference:  

  • Dates: From May 17 to 19

Cirque De Boudoir’s FANTASYLAND 2023 – CYBERPUNK

Subway already told you about Cirque De Boudoir, which organizes dance and burlesque evenings six to seven times a year.

What makes these events attractive is in particular being able to dress in a sexy and/or thematic way – in fact, it is even mandatory at the risk of being refused entry. The next meeting has something to excite the most geeks among you, because the objective this time is to transport us to a cyberpunk universe!  

“We are taking you to a near future where robotics, cybernetics and AI abound. With awesome DJs, live performances and Go Go dancers, visuals, [blacklights] and more!” promise the organizers.

  • Date: May 20 at 9 p.m.
  • Location: Fairmount Theater (5240 avenue du Parc) 
  • Language: English and French
