Extrait du spectacle La Vie qui bat, qui sera repris à Montréal les 18 et 19 février 2011, 9m48s

Production MNM in codiffusion with O Vertigo and in collaboration with Sixtrum

A memorable performance of music and dance, La Vie qui bat is an opportunity to hear Steve Reich’s famous work Drumming performed live and choreographed by Ginette Laurin. After appearances in Tokyo and Marseille, this performance — critically and publicly acclaimed upon its premiere 12 years ago — is being reprised in its original version with its initiator Walter Boudreau. The conductor teams up once again — for the first time since 1999 — with dance troupe O Vertigo to provide Montrealers with a second opportunity to witness this grand event. 13 musicians and 10 dancers on stage. Don’t miss this return!

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
