Fresh 2 Death Battle (F2D) - AUG 22-25 - FESTIVAL MODE & DESIGN


                           
 AUG 22-25...Fresh 2 Death Battle (F2D)
Is an event that marks the meeting between street dance and fashion. This concept, developed in collaboration with the Fashion & Design Festival, is born from the idea that street dancers are not only gifted in every dance form they practice but also have a keen sense of fashion.
To ensure the smooth running of this first edition and to help those who don't always dare, our 3 judges will also be the stylists of their respective categories. All dancers participating in the Battle F2D will be invited to consult the judges so that they can find a personalized look together. We know that some dancers won't need it, for the others it's a chance to DARE !!

QUEENS CREATION 2018 - AUG 10 & 11


Queens Creation is an annual event created in 2013 by the CICU, (Convention internationale de la culture urbaine).
Queens Creation celebrates the work and contribution of women in the urban arts culture by breaking down barriers and eradicating stereotypes in what is falsely considered a predominantly male culture. 
Nonetheless, this culture counts on the presence of more and more women, in visual arts, in dance and in music. 
Queens Creation is, therefore, a meeting point to highlight the work of these women. 

2018 marks the 5th year of Queens Creation made possible by the assistance of Place Gamelins, Lush, Diss Torsion Studio, Shauna Roberts Dance Centre and the Under Pressure Festival.

Over the weekend, several FREE (or by donation) activities are offered to cover all areas of Urban Culture including Dance workshops, Conferences, Live Music and Dance Performances and Interactive Art activities for adults and children.
These activities are offered to familiarize participants and the general public with aspects of urban culture and help demystify and bring to the spotlight women’s participation and important role in the culture.

********************************************

Créé en 2013, Queens Creation est un événement annuel qui a pour but de célébrer, de soutenir et d’encourager l’émancipation et la reconnaissance des femmes dans la culture urbaine, milieu qui se veut majoritairement masculin. Malgré tout, cette culture compte de plus en plus de femmes, tant au niveau des arts visuels, de la danse que de la musique.

The SAUCE w/Bles-sed, Ruby Jane & Professor Groove - Jul 28th - Bar La Shop

This Sat Jul 21st IT'S GOING DOWN at The SAUCE avec Bles-sed, Professor Groove & Ruby Jane!!!

I'm so grateful to DJ alongside two of Montreal's veterans on the 1's & 2's Ruby Jane & Professor Groove of Nick ProfessorGroove LeFonque of WEFUNK Radio!!! Truly appreciate the opportunity to be a guest for this dope monthly party...get ready to go deep!

THE SAUCE is poised between sweet nostalgia andanticipation for new things to come. It’s a splash of heat on a plate of rice. It’s a glowing sunset at a summer block party. It’s your freshest outfit on a Saturday night. It’s a spicy selection of party jams that travel the funk spectrum – boogie, future funk, classic breaks, soul and hip hop.
