In only 3 minutes, projets hybris offers a crash course on the criminalisation of people living with HIV in Canada. At the ring of the bell, will you, like South African judge Edwin Cameron, also be convinced that ALL Canadians should share the blame concerning the alarming rate of criminalisation cases in the country ?

Event organized Wants & Needs (Montreal)

To launch its  2016-2017 season, La Chapelle presents a grand opening event with the famous Short & Sweet nights, initiated by Sasha Kleinplatz and Andrew Tay. This La Chapelle special edition features a big part of the artists from the season. Short & Sweet follows these simple rules: invited artists are given carte blanche to present whatever they want, as long as it is under three minutes! A timekeeper is present and any artist going over the allotted time frame is immediately cut off. Short & Sweet has become an important platform for artists to take risks.
