The Rencontre interuniversitaire de performance actuelle [RIPA] invites you to celebrate its fifth edition with a night of performance art. The evening will bring together the work of seven emerging artists from different academic and professional backgrounds as well as the work of this year’s edition’s ambassador, Caroline Boileau. Festive, political, theatrical or ‘furtive’, the different performances aim to encourage collective experiences and thinking. Laurence Beaudoin Morin [UQAM], Vincent Brière [Concordia], Rose de la Riva [UQAM], Serge Olivier Fokoua [ULaval], Félipe Goulet-Letarte [UdeM], Emma-Kate Guimond [UQAM] et Julie Laurin [UQAM] and Caroline Boileau offer performances as part of a varied program incorporating challenging as well as complementary issues.
