Project|the blazing night|flyer|details


The blazing night took place on Friday, August 9th from in front of Metropolis, corner of Sainte-Catherine and Saint-Dominique. ATSA offers a direct encounter with the element of fire, recontextualized within the urban life of Montreal through the stories of people and buildings touched by its blaze.  A non-narrative evening evoking the history of fire on the Main.
