Docu_Presence (June 17th, 2019 — La Vitrola, Montreal 19.00)

Docu_Presence est une installation-performance qui examine le folklore au sens large en tant qu'idée de transmission culturelle, explorant les multiples facettes de l'interaction dans les contextes traditionnels et urbains en utilisant des sons et images.
