The Studio Theatre Season Kicks Off
with Le chien, la nuit et le couteau
By Marius von Mayenburg

Translated by Hélène Mauler and René Zahnd
Directed by Mireille Camier

Presented by Les productions quitte ou double and the Segal Centre as part of the Montréal en lumière Festival

On until February 25, 2012

Our Studio theatre is in full swing and you won't want to miss this Kafka-esque, post-apocalyptic journey from Les productions quitte ou double.

Featuring recent grads of the UQAM theatre program, this story from famed German playwright Marius von Mayenburg plunges us into a world where reality has been turned upside down. With no clear reason why, night has become day and the city is covered with sand. The carefully constructed human order has turned to chaos. It is in this world that M finds himself, forced to channel his animal instincts in order to survive.

Presented in French

Theatre and Danger: Public lecture series continues


Prof. Paul Yachnin (Department of English) and Chip Chuipka (Actor, ASM Performing Arts)

March 1st at 7:30pm
In the CinemaSpace
Part of the all-new THEATRE & DANGER SERIES

The "Scottish Play" is the most dangerous play in the canon of world drama-most dangerous, it is said, especially for theatre practitioners. In this presentation, Paul Yachnin and Chip Chuipka ask, just what makes the Scottish Play so full of hazard? To answer this question, they stir together theatrical and literary history, and add in a good measure of the bedeviled politics of Shakespeare's England.

Don't miss this engaging lecture!

McConnell Building (1400 De Maisonneuve Blvd. W., at Guy-Concordia)

The film presents the untold story of Erich Mendelsohn, a seminal architect whose life and career were as enigmatic and challenging as the course of the 20th century. The buildings he designed around the world changed the history of architecture.
