Nuit Blanche – Lueur dans la nuit
Sat March 3, 2018 @ 20:00 - Sun March 4, 2018 @ 00:00
The Museum of Jewish Montreal presents: Lueur dans la Nuit, in partnership with Nuit blanche, Festival Montréal en lumière, and Téo Taxi.
For the fifth year in a row, the Museum of Jewish Montreal is taking part in Nuit Blanche – this year, the Museum is lighting up the corner of St-Laurent and Duluth with live dance performances and multi-channel video projections.
On March 3, the Museum space will be brought to life by dancer-choreographer Lucy Fandel’s piece Lueur dans la nuit, performed with Liliana Argumedo, Tamar Tabori and Xdzunúm Trejo. Join us for an evening of light and warmth for this Nuit Blanche special presentation, happening one night only!
Throughout the piece small candles and lights are gradually dispersed as the dancers occupy the space. The performances emphasize the rich sound design and visuals of the Scintillements | 1001 Lights video installation, by Marlene Millar and Philip Szporer of Movement Perpétuel, currently on exhibition at the Museum. The 15-minute video installation explores themes related to Sabbath candle-lighting rituals through hand gesture choreography and individually documented ceremonies.
