Under the fertile, open-minded approach of the projets hybris company, artists and other guests share curiosities and favourite works from their own queer libraries, in association with the feminist bookstore L’Euguélionne. Works that enlighten, transform and elevate. Ideas incarnated in the body are an exploration of queer culture anchored in literature.

marginalized subjects, identities and histories in the performing arts

one-day conference

May 28, 2015, 10 am – 6 pm

Usine C, Montreal, for OFFTA - live arts festival


In an attempt to assess various ongoing processes of exclusion in the performing arts community, projets hybris invites artists, academics and cultural workers to reflect on the matter and provide a diversified picture of the situation. The results of this call-out are gathered for Offstage: marginalized subjects, identities and histories in the performing arts, a one-day conference presented as a satellite activity of OFFTA 2015.

Offstage presents a large panorama of alternative or marginalized artistic practices showing the richness of contemporary creation from Montreal and from abroad. More than a plea for a more inclusive scene, this conference seeks to put forward the energy of artists and institutions who keep this resistance towards vehicles of exclusion at the core of their work. The practices highlighted during this conference stand out by their social and political activism as well as by the boldness and innovation they champion. Offstage wants to act as a get together, as an opportunity to reflect and learn from one another through informal discussions between artists, institutions, academics, promoters and the public.
