Lèche-vitrine: a new one-off initiative in Montréal
"Like all performing artists, Gen Morin and Antoine Carabinier Lépine can no longer practice their profession "in person" since the beginning of the pandemic.
The two members of Cirque Alfonse have therefore decided to launch Lèche-Vitrine. A friendly and spontaneous artistic project that consists of transforming the window of a ice cream shop on Ontario Street, closed during the fall and winter, into a tiny stage where artists can perform to continue to exist in the public eye. (...)
After Bonheur mobile and its parades through the neighborhood's alleys last summer, Lèche-Vitrine is the second project of La Compagnie des autres, founded in 2020 by Carabinier Lépine, Alice Kop and Nicolas Fortin. Its mission is to support circus creation and encourage the diversity of local initiatives. (...)
Until November 6, Lèche-Vitrine will present a different artist at each nightfall. And not only circus. There will also be dancers, painters and stage performers performing in this confined space."
Until November 6, in front of 3225B Ontario Street East, Montreal, adjacent to the nearby bakery, Les 3 Patapoufs. For Halloween, on Saturday, October 31, five shop windows will be animated from 4pm.
