Israeli Episode: Arkadi Zaides, Zohar Melinek & Mary St-Amand Williamson

Dear Montréal,

This week we had a happy accident in programing and had two different guests from Israel in for interviews.  The first was Arkadi Zaides, the choreographer of Quiet (2009).  The show, which is on a world tour, is touching down in Montréal at the MAI for two nights only.  You can catch the show this weekend on October 12th and 13th at 8pm.  We host a sweet interview with a generous guest.

Next we just had to plug two great shows happening in the city this weekend.  First Jenn and Allison gush about Crystal Pite’s company Kidd Pivot presenting The Tempest Replica.  The show is playing at Agora, but we will spare you the details since the show is already sold out for the weekend.  So you lucky ducks who already have tickets, enjoy!  You can read Allison’s review of the show at Bloody Underrated.

J.D. then urges us to see Benoît Lachambre’s faux-solo, Snakeskins.  You can catch the show at Usine C at 8pm on the evenings of the 11th and the 12th.  He’ll be giving us a more in-depth review next week.

Zohar Melinek, Mary St-Amand Williamson & J.D. Papillon

The second interview during today’s episode was with a duo of multi-talented, interdisciplinary artists, Zohar Melinek and Mary St-Amand Williamson.  They are funny, heavy, political and intelligent.  It is a very full twenty-minute discussion.  You can learn more about their projects at

Our show from OCTOBER 11th, 2012


Take care,

J.D. Papillon, Jenn Doan and Allison Burns
