Bercer le temps
Aug 24 @ 15:00 – 20:00

Bercer le temps - WestmountMag.ca

On Thursday and Friday, August 24 and 25, from 3 pm to 8 pm, in Westmount Park, come experience the sound installation Bercer le temps, where contributed lullabies bring rocking chairs to life.

Set up in the heart of the city, the installation welcomes visitors in a suspended time-space outside of the surrounding urban bustle. Feet on the grass, swinging along, everyone can get carried away by the echoes of childhood through songs from all over the world.

A soothing and comforting ritual, a song of love and tenderness, lullabies reassure and guide towards the night. At the threshold of the sleep, they take different shapes, from an ancient melody to a popular song, from nursery rhymes to soft incantations. Lullabies are transmitted in secret and often forgotten. Our collection reveals the treasures of cosmopolitan Montreal gleaned from all over the city, drawing on traditions from Quebec, the first nations, Congo, France, Germany, Iran, Japan, Russia and Venezuela, to name a few.

In association with the Conseil des arts de Montreal en tournée.
