/ MONUMENTAL OCCUPATION
By National Theatre School of Canada
166 young artists and a 24-hour creation marathon to celebrate the Monument-National’s 125th anniversary
The Monument-National, one of Montreal’s historical and architectural jewels, turns 125 this year! To mark the occasion, the National Theatre School of Canada, owner of the building, has invited all of its students and resident artists to take part in a one-time-only creation challenge. In teams, they will have only 24 hours to create 12 short scenes, each inspired by the Monument-National’s rich history.
On the afternoon of September 30, 2018, come witness the end result of this enthralling « creation marathon », consisting of two unique theatrical experiences that will take the public through the Monument-National’s public and secret spaces. This bold artistic project underlines the importance of art in the city, and invites Montrealers to rediscover the amazing stories that inhabit one of Montreal’s most admirable buildings.
The event is presented in both French and English, without direct translation.
