StéréoKULTUR is proud to present a panorama retrospective of independent film and video works shot in Montreal and Berlin by Quebec filmmaker Lysanne Thibodeau.
This program will tour Canada from June 21 2012 onwards, with the support of the Canada Arts Council.
Lysanne Thibodeau has lived over 14 years in Germany and this experience has marked her artistic path. The program offers seven films and videos of hybrid genre, combining documentary, fiction and essay – which were made between 1978 and 2003, before, during and after her “Berlin exile”.
Through the works presented, StéréoKULTUR creates a bridge between Canadian films shot in Germany and Canadian films inspired by a German experience, connecting the two cultures and producing intercultural exchange between artist and audience.
Lysanne Thibodeau will be presenting her works in different media art centers and will give a workshop and an artist talk on the topics addressed following the projection.
The first centers hosting the retrospective are: MediaNet in Victoria June 21-22, PAVED Arts in Saskatoon July 6-7 and the Filmpool in Regina July 9-10.
The presentation will pursue its path throughout Canada in the Fall of 2012.

StéréoKULTUR is proud to co-present a unique event: the Montreal concert of the Swiss a-cappella revelation ‘The Glue’.
The Glue, that is a-cappella at its finest – modern, young, and with a good touch of humor. Currently they are presenting their program ‘Kin’ de lele’ on a North-American tour. In the Montreal concert the five performers will feature songs in German, English and Italian.

The Glue – band without instruments
For the past thirteen years the “band without instruments” has been enthusing their audience. The 5 young men have already produced four albums and a DVD and have been on stage over six hundred times all over Europe, for example in Germany, France and the Czech Republic. In March 2011 they travel to the US and to Canada for the first time, in order to perform their self-written songs. Country-music, Latin Salsa, East-European Gipsy tunes or African tribal sounds, there’s no style they would’nt adapt… Their specialty is their unconventional performance, and the group astounds no matter the setting. Private and intimate in small theatres, bombastic and with perfect choreographies on the big stage. Notable highlights thus far have been as Swiss support at the FIFA World Cup 2006 in Germany, being honored and performing live concerts on Swiss Radio DRS, and sold-out performances at the concert house in Basel. In November 2011 they received the cultural award of the canton Basel-Landschaft and qualified themselves among the top 5 out of 500 groups for the swiss finals of the Eurovision Song Contest.
The Glue are currently on the road throughout Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Canada and USA where they perform their program “Kin’ de Lele”, charming and enthusing crowds all over with their unusually comical yet still always professional musical performance.
