La Jeune-Fille et la Mort

Quebec-based Bureau de l’APA invites the audience to participate in a fantastical classroom—a performance complete with textbooks, a ballet instructor, sound poetry, sculptures, and a string quartet.

Based in Quebec City, Laurence Brunelle-Côté is a writer, performer, and designer who works with artists from a variety of disciplines (dance, performance, poetry, music, and multidisciplinary arts). Simon Drouin is a performer, designer, musician, and member of the Orchestre d’Hommes-Orchestres, a multidisciplinary arts collective that makes “music that can be seen.” In 2001, the pair founded the Bureau de l’APA, an undisciplined performing art company whose aim is to bring together artists from all fields to work on atypical creative projects.

The performance begins at 7 p.m. in Studio 1 – Goodman at the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC). Note: This performance contains scenes of nudity. Tickets are $18/$13/$6. For more information, go to
