• First People’s Festival

    ON AUG. 2 TO 9 – As has become our tradition, First Peoples Festival will kick off its festive installations in the Quartier des spectacles with dances, concerts, active art and grilling with an Indigenous touch, while a parallel international film and video competition will present the best of cinematographic creations by and about First peoples.

    With these interactive activities in the public space, a liturgy for modern times is taking shape, via the parade, the scenography at Place du Makusham and the ritual theatre, restoring the city’s connection with its deepest identity. It reappears now in new forms through partnerships among artists of all origins drawing upon the sources and renewal of Indigenous culture. This makes the celebrations touch the chords of our collective lust for life that resonates powerfully.
