At the very heart of the 10th edition of Festival TransAmériques from May 26 to June 8, 2016, the mysterious and formidable theatrical power of Romeo Castellucci is sure to jolt Montrealers once his Go Down, Moses hits the stage. The masterful Castellucci again questions God through art. He reinvents the world, presenting a rush of incredible images that catapult the audience from contemporary hyperrealism to an age-old dream world.
The Association québécoise des critiques de théâtre (AQCT) announced on November 25 the winners of the Prix de la critique for the 2014-15 season in Montreal.
