For the last four years, we’ve been helping Montrealers figure out what’s going on in the city and what shows are worth checking out. And even though we’re WATS is closing its doors, that doesn’t mean that shows mustn’t still go on.
This time of year brings with it resolutions and the opportunity to make way for new and exciting challenge. I have decided to focus on other ventures and will be shutting down WATS on February 28th, 2015.
I’ve been going out almost every night to the Fringe with great anticipation of the awesomeness about to hit me, and this years Fringe has definitely delivered. Here are a few of my favourite shows.
At the core of the Fringe Festival is a bewildering number of plays. Unless you’ve seen previous shows by the same people or have spoken with the performers and directors and heard what they’re planning, it’s hard to know what’s good early on in the festival, just based on descriptions in the programme.
Oh Fringe! Sigh… here we go again! So much to see, so much to do, and so many late nights. This year I’ve drawn up a short list of dance…
Fringe Fest might be best known for off-the-wall comedy and quirky theater, but without music you’d be missing out on the festival’s ivory tickling, bojanglin’ third arm.
Rachid Ouramdane’s Loin, was presented this past weekend at the MAI in Montreal as part of a world tour including : Switzerland, South Korea, Spain and New Zealand.
The thing about the James Bond franchise that’s so alluring is that it’s a melange of action, satire, and sexy times. And if you agree with that statement, then you should probably see Acme Burlesque’s “From Acme with Love” !
“Fixer la Chair”, presented by Tangente at the Monument rationale this past weekend, was a complimentary pairing of works by Caroline Laurin-Beaucage and Amélie Rajotte, both members of LORGANISME, a company that unites independent choreographers.
We usually try and stay away from politics here at WATS and just stick to the fun stuff. But every once in a while, we gotta break the rules. Especially when entertainment and parody overlap with the political zeitgeist with social commentary as brilliant as this performance at the Candy Ass Cabaret.
