Samedis DAR (DAR Saturdays)

Introduction

This summer we wanted to offer you a series of events, which would enable you to discover artists and performances from each of the three disciplines we support. Hence, the Samedis DAR (DAR Saturdays) which took place over the course of three weekends in July.

We already mentioned the grand reopening on July 3rd of Studios DAR Sutton, which coincided with our first Samedi DAR, whence we had the pleasure of unveiling a new sculpture by renowned artist André Fournelle in the D'Arts et de rêves Park. Thank you to the near 150 people who came out to join in the celebration !

You were there !

A collective of 5 circus artists, Arthur Morel Van Hyfte, Tuedon Ariri, Olivier Sylvestre, Marie Lebot & Guillaume Paquin, impressed all who were present with a dreamy performance imbued with strength and tenderness, following a week in residence at Studios DAR.

More than 225 people attended this unique performance, a world premiere.

Long live Projet Sanctuaire!

SLAM and poetry – July 17

Another wonderful performance at the Agora in the Park ! Spoken-word performances by five artist-poets made everyone laugh and cry. Indeed, more than 50 spectators came to meet and share the experience with Vanessa Bell, Queen Ka, Lem, Amélie Prévost et David Leduc.
