Happening in Montréal this month:


January 20 to February 15, 2015 – Centaur Theatre

In this internationally acclaimed Irish drama, three lost souls weave rhythmical monologues of loneliness, violence and urban adventure into a vivid tapestry. Painting an ominous picture of Dublin’s gritty underworld, their mesmerizing tales take us from busy city streets to the top of an industrial crane in the sky, then deep into the murky purgatory of singing serial killers, vengeful angels and lovesick demons. Fantastical, exhilarating and darkly funny.

Warhal Mania

A Brand-new Look at His Advertising Posters & Magazine Illustrations

November 06, 2014 to March 15, 2015 – Museum of Fine Arts

As a leader of the American Pop Art movement, Andy Warhol saw his works, together with his image, given wide media coverage. But aside from this coverage, what about Warhol’s own advertising genius, his gift for creating brilliant posters to sell products or promote causes and events? The collector and art historian Paul Maréchal reveals another aspect of the artist’s graphic design work. This time, he has chosen to share with the public his collection of fifty posters and almost a thousand illustrations found in 400 magazine. The exhibition will be accompanied by two catalogues raisonnés, the outcome of intensive research. Paul Maréchal gives us an overview of the show.

Named 2013 Dance Artist of the Year by the Globe and Mail, Artistic Director Emily Molnar has made BalletBC one of the most renowned contemporary ballet companies of the past few years. She has featured not only her own choreographies, but has also diversified the repertoire by inviting well-known European choreographers to present their works to a Canadian audience. By combining the award-winning Walking Mad by Swedish choreographer Johan Inger together with the zany and sophisticated Petite Cérémonie by the French artist Medhi Walerski and the strange tribal ritual A.U.R.A. (Anarchist Unit Related to Art) by the Italian-born dancemaker Jacopo Godani, she places the spotlight on the multiple talents of her 18 dancers, who perform movements in perfect unison, dazzling duos, theatrical sequences and individualized solo works. Three distinct aesthetics are featured in this stimulating incursion into new choreographic territories.


(Expressionism in Germany and France, 1900-1914)

October 11, 2014 to January 25, 2015 – Museum of Fine Arts

In the fall, a century after the start of the Great War in 1914, this exhibitions studies the rich dimensions of this exchange between France and Germany and the range of responses that it prompted.

More than 100 paintings, together with several documents from masters such as Cézanne, Gauguin, Derain, Delaunay, Signac, Seurat, Van Gogh, Vlaminck… on the French side and Heckel, Jawlenski, Kandinsky, Kirchner, Nolde, Pechstein, Schmidt-Rottluff… on the German side, will be seen at the MMFA.

Despite German artists' exposure to and engagement with French art, "Expressionism" has come to be considered distinctly German. However, in its early twentieth-century beginnings, Expressionism was assigned no specific nationality, and it evolved as a lively exchange between artists based in Germany and new developments in modern French art. German Expressionism and France will demonstrate the rich dimensions of this exchange and the range of responses that it prompted.

Montréal International Auto Show

January 16 to 25, 2015 – Palais des Congrès

A constant increase in the number of visitors testified to its success, and organizers were prompted to surpass themselves and create more and more special attractions and unveilings. From 1970 to 1989, the Show's rapid growth rested on two vital elements: the manufacturers' wish to present a greater selection of vehicles and the new manufacturers' requests for their own place among us. Another move was in order... In 1990, the MIAS entered into the third stage of its history by moving into Montréal's Olympic Stadium. The prestigious location had all the characteristics required for the Show to develop its potential: a much larger exposition site and a luxurious interior that compares to the greatest hotels. At the turn of the millennium, the MIAS settled in a more central location at the Palais des congrès de Montréal to capitalize on down-town location near the OldPort and right in the heart of the business area.
