MAI présente Eclectik 2018 : Âgés et Déjantés

<p>Many of you have asked us for the programming of Eclectik 2018: Âgés et Déjantés. Tadaaaammm! Jacqueline Van De Geer, Heather Mah, Ralph Maingrette, Graziella Malagoni, and, David Rose and more!</p><p> </p><p><strong>What is Eclectik ?</strong></p><p> </p><p>Eclectik is a landmark, the nexus between many divergent and convergent worlds and perspectives, between creation and presentation, between message and medium.</p><p> </p><p>Eclectik is also an annual micro-festival cum cabaret cum forum cum awholelotta art, awholelotta fun. For 11 years, it has been MAI’s once-a-year opportunity to don the gown of producer - commissioning new creations from a pluricultural array of artists in all disciplines.</p><p> </p><p>Permit us to name drop – Lara Kramer, Fabrice Koffy, Socalled, Roger Sinha, Queen K, Karla Étienne, Daina Ashbee, Karl Lemieux, Jimmy Blais, Caroline Monnet, Mohsen El Gharbi, <em>Émilie Monnet</em>, Khadija Baker, Alexandra Spicey Landé, Vox Sambou, Moe Clark, Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, Huu Bac Quach, Gotta Lago, Ismaël Mouaraki, Ghislaine Doté, Mireille Tawfik, Ricardo L’amour alias Emrical, Meryem Saci, Kathia Rock to name but a few who have graced the stage over an 11 year period.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>Eclectik 2018 : Âgés et déjantés</strong></p><p> </p><p><img alt="Visuel_crowdfunding_final-1508864364" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/460814/Visuel_Crowdfunding_Final-1508864364.jpg"></p><p> </p><p>For 4 years now, MAI has directed, through its Mentorship Program, a gaze towards the older artist. </p><p> </p><p>Taking inspiration from <em>Older</em> &amp; <em>Reckless</em>, an acclaimed dance series developed by Claudia Moore in Toronto, <em>Âgés et déjantés</em> pays homage artists of 50 years old and up (of cultural and racial diversity), advocates for the recognition and increased awareness of the challenges faced by older artists.</p><p> </p><p>It addresses concerns such as the language currently used to discuss old age and generational relevancy and /or redundancy as it relates to art. At the very centre of this inquest, this initiative is, to borrow a term, lastingness, a means of resistance, of maintaining or regaining visibility.  </p><p> </p><p><img alt="Soutenez_eclektik_v2-1507927394" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/458126/soutenez_eclektik_V2-1507927394.png"></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>What is crowdfuding and why are we using it ?</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><em>If we’re going to go out, we might as well go out with a bang</em></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>In face of a funding cut directly impacting the production of Eclectik with 2/3rds of its funding gone, MAI decided to initiate this crowdfunding campaign, to allow whoever wants to make Eclectik shine again, at least for a last time, to do it... </p><p> </p><p>Let’s this be an Irish wake! Let this be a New Orleans style dénouement to a long history of artistic expression.</p><p> </p><p>But most of all, let this be anything but <em>a surrender.</em></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><img alt="Contreparties_typo-1508860898" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/460802/contreparties_typo-1508860898.png"></p><p> </p><p><img alt="Gif_contreparties-1508950907" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/461200/gif_contreparties-1508950907.gif"></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>If we reach more than the wished amount</strong></p><p> </p><p><img alt="Paliers_v2-1507928085" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/458129/paliers_V2-1507928085.png"></p><p> </p><p>Without additional funds, Eclectik 2018 is going to be a bone of an edition with not a lot of meat. Meaning the number of artists commissioned will be minimal, lighting will be minimal, and the choice of venue will be affected (gallery versus theatre).</p><p> </p><p><em>No glamour, no frills.</em></p><p> </p><p>With additional funds, we’re going to throw one hell of a celebration in honor of elders.</p><p> </p><p>We’re going to find the oldest DJ in Montréal. Even better, we plan to send the first elder into space (to, of course, a planet of their choice) to demonstrate to just what extent <em>older</em> is the new cool.</p><p> </p><p>Our elders, we believe, deserve better! Let them have the starlight they deserve. Let them have butter!</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><img alt="Soutenez_eclektik-1507928065" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/458128/soutenez_eclektik-1507928065.png"></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
