In conjunction with the exhibition Cory Arcangel: Power Points, DHC/ART presents Bagels, Velcro, Jardin Botanique: An Evening of Banal Readings. Curated and hosted by Alexis O'Hara, the event brings together an eclectic cast of Montreal performers who will bring to life the often neglected texts of everyday life. Grocery lists, pages from the phone book, technical instructions and others commonplace scripts will be transformed into riveting, dramatic performances. Members of the audience are also invited to join the fray during the open mic session. Bring your own trivial text or peruse a stack of documents collected for this unusual occasion.
