Tracks et Déraillements Presented by the Rencontres/Encounters Project at the Montreal, arts interculturels (MAI) January 20-23rd 2016
Excerpt taken from Rencontres/Encounters website: "Rencontres/Encounters (R/E) is an engaged, intercultural research-creation project, whose aim is to R/E-evaluate, R/E-envision and R/E-imagine performance as a means to build relationship across different values and life experiences. R/E aims also to offer possibilities for transformation in understanding of others and otherness in a range of community contexts. The R/E believes that another person’s perspective can be better understood (though never even close to fully understood) through storytelling, dialogue, and through performance of oneself, and of another."
