The eleventh annual Montreal International Anarchist Theatre Festival (MIATF) – the world’s biggest and only anarchist theatre festival – will present 20 artists (six groups) from Santiago, Berlin, the USA, Ontario, the Gaspé and Montreal for two nights of provocative, socially engaged, freedom-loving theatre, Tues May 17th & Wed May 18th, at La Sala Rossa, 4848 boul St-Laurent, 7:30pm.
Program highlights include a dynamic musical theatre piece from Chile inspired by the 2011 student strike that changed Chile’s education system (with references to a murdered anarchist poet from the early 20th century), and the powerful physical theatre of a Berlin-based Spanish troupe exploring the life of disgruntled dishwashers in a luxury restaurant.
