RIPA 2018

Montréal, April 16, 2018. For its seventh edition, RIPA (Rencontre interuniversitaire de performance actuelle) is proud to present nine projects by emerging artists, in addition to a piece by Michelle Lacombe, this year’s guest artist.

The performance art pieces, shown in various formats of shorter and longer durations, will follow one after another in different spaces of the Ancienne École des Beaux-Arts. Some will be presented as continual pieces.

This year’s artists:

Guillaume Bergeron Brassard (UQAM); Joliane Dufresne (UQTR); Roxa Hy (Concordia); Antonio Larios (UQAC); Alegria Lemay-Gobeil (UQAM); Santiago Tamayo Soler (Concordia) and his collaborators; Allison Macdonald (MassArt, Boston); Alix Roederer (Concordia); Ana Carolina von Hertwig (Concordia)

The performers will put forward their proposals, hinting at various recurring themes over the course of the evening. Among these are the idea of power relationships – be it via some type of apparatus or the direct presence of the artist –, the limits of the performative act and its impact on the object, as well self-awareness and the awareness of others in the performance space, by direct action or infiltration.

RIPA will take place on April 14 and 15, at the Ancienne École des Beaux-arts
