Zab Maboungou, the Montreal philosopher and choreographer, presents “Hâltérité”, human zoos and festivities. (according to a non-original idea of the author).

This ambulatory event brings together around twenty artists from the fields of dance, theatre, performance and literature. A work that takes a critical look at the cultural mon(s)tration at work in our societies. The word of the artist: “You are invited to the festivities!”.
