Celebrating the emerging

Circuit-Est is associating with ARTCH to celebrate dance in a big, open-air way during this 4ᵉ edition of the festival. On September 15 at 5 pm come see Ford Larose McKeown's performance at Downtown.


Ford is a Montreal choreographer of Haitian descent specializing in street dance. He is recognized for his unique approach to Boogaloo/Popping. Proud of his african roots, each of his steps reflects the rich heritage that inhabit him. Through his choreographic adventure, he aims to set in motion the multiple universes that animate his imagination.

Straight from space, this ancestral futuristic choreographic creation is intended as a journey into the parallel universes of the funkosphere. Maestria draws its essence from the cultures of Boogaloo and Strutting, heritages of the Afro-American and Afro-descendant communities of the 1960s and 1970s. A tribute to the imagination and the resilience of these communities in the face of a world wanting its loss.

ARTCH is the place to be for emerging contemporary art in Montreal. The festival highlights emerging artists of all artistic backgrounds. The vocation of the festival is to identify, train and create a career springboard for emerging professional artists.
