8163 rue Saint-Gerard. Three minutes from Jarry metro. Entrance through the back alley.
This event takes place in a backyard that has a maximum capacity of 20 people which will be minded. There is plenty of space in the alley for spillover – from there you can still dance and see the performances. Please be mindful of our neighbours.
The backyard is overgrown and difficult to maneuver. There are places to sit and rest. If you would like to remain immobile, there is a patio where space can be made for you – please contact @tevinescence in advance.
If you are in the alley and are having trouble with visibility, accommodations will be made for you – contact @tevinescence.
There is a single washroom inside up a half-flight of stairs.
If you are in the backyard, you will be close to other people. If you have not been vaccinated, please maintain social distancing and wear a mask. It is suggested that you remain in the alley. If you would like to contest this, please contact @tevinescence to discuss your situation and what space can be made for you.
This event takes place on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. The island called “Montreal” is known as Tiotia:ke in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, and it has historically been a meeting place for other Indigenous nations, including the omàmiwininì or Algonquin people.
80% of all proceeds will go towards Land In Sights, the org behind PresenceAutochtone, The Montreal First People's Festival, which celebrates Indigenous soul through cinema, music, visual art, theatre and culture every summer.
“Night Sweats” is an expression of gratitude to the planet and to life through creation, storytelling, and celebration. We sweat to shake off residual fear and old baggage in order to be available to present struggles.
