Potsdam | Montréal

Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique participates in the international exchange Potsdam | Montréal by inviting the artists Olivia Hyunsin Kim (KOR/DEU) and Melmun Bajarchuu (DEU) in its studios. In return, the artists Angélique Amyot and Gabrielle Bélanger (QC) completed a residency at Fabrik Potsdam in 2021-2022.

The project

German artists Olivia Hyunsin Kim and Melmun Bajarchuu share a common interest in resistance practices from minority positions. They adopt postcolonial and post-migrant perspectives and would like, as part of the residency in Montreal, to exchange with local artists from different disciplines who work on similar themes around the criticism of power, intersectional struggles and queer feminist issues.
