La communauté hip hop de Montréal, en collaboration avec 100lux, VicVersa et Tangente, a le plaisir d’accueillir Jonzi D à Montréal pour une semaine intensive d’ateliers et de discussions.

Dans le cadre de cette conférence, Helen Simard tiendra une conversation centrée sur le savoir-faire de Jonzi en tant que l’un des activistes les plus avant-gardistes du théâtre hip-hop au monde.

Nos principaux objectifs seront les suivants: formaliser la pratique informelle (les expériences des danseurs de rue en tant qu’attributs de création et de demande de financement); développer et partager notre vision et notre voix (méthodes de communication directe et pure en lien avec notre langage); Pratiques et plateformes de théâtre international de hip hop.

Les membres de la communauté sont grandement invités à participer de façon active à la discussion.
