FOLK NOIR at Bain Mathieu

On May 20th, at Bain Mathieu (Montréal), we will dive into the creative mind of Montréal composer Nicole Lizée. In FOLK NOIR, we will create a surrealistic world of machine-inspired glitch, haunting harmonies, and interplay between musical tradition and pop culture. With works composed in this millennium, including a new piece written for us (Ultraviolet Blues), this show is full of imagery and narrative in an atmosphere to match the musical inspiration. You won’t want to miss it. Tickets are available now!


Bain Mathieu / 2915 Ontario E, Montreal

Doors 7:00 PM, Concert 7:30 PM

Tickets $18 - $30 Co-presented with Le Vivier

“Canadian composer Nicole Lizée leaves you wondering whether you have just witnessed pop culture being turned into high art or vice versa. The answer, of course, is that the line has been obliterated.”
