infringing this weekend...part two

infringing this weekend...

Some interesting stuff to check out...

Anti-Hallmark Valentine's Day party!

This Valentine’s Day, Head & Hands wants to invite you to come celebrate love in all of its forms.
The evening will feature Montreal DJs DJ Maus and Julie D alongside rockout act Kill the Lights, and punk band Tundra. Andrew Johnston, who has a side project from The gentlemen's Club called The Hearts In Transit will also be part of the show. In addition we will have a theatre performance by The Dead Doll Dancers.

The evening will also act as the launch party to Head & Hands’ 2006 Save Our Sex Ed (SOS) campaign which aims to raise funds for Head & Hands sex education programs. Unlike other diseases, STIs and AIDS are completely preventable and education is the key to protection. Support Head and Hands in the SOS campaign and help us make sure that Montreal youth get the sex education they deserve.

8pm at El Salon, 4388 Blvd. St. Laurent. $10 in advance or $12 the door. Tickets are available at Head & Hands, 5833 Sherbrooke W, 481-0277.

Something infringers might be interested in...


Montreal's newly created 'Anarchist Theatre Festival' is now seeking submissions of anarchist theatre pieces to be staged May 8 & 9, 2006. This will be North America's first ever festival of anarchist theatre.

The festival is part of Montreal's annual 'Festival of Anarchy' that leads up to the city's
7th annual 'Anarchist Bookfair,' May 20 & 21st, the largest anarchist event in North America.

We are looking for theatre pieces about anarchists, anarchist ideas, history, or any subject related to anarchism. We will consider plays or monologues that are original new work, or that have already been performed, or that have been written by anarchists (historical or contemporary). The pieces can be either full productions or staged readings in either French or English.

We are looking for work that is anti-State, anti-capitalist, non-sexist,
non-homophobic, anti-Empire, anti-authoritarian, etc. We want anarchist content written by either anarchist playwrights or writers who are sympathetic to anarchism. ( Please see the 'Principles' section of the web site of the Montreal Anarchist Bookfair for a more detailed description of appropriate guidelines for 'anarchist' content. )
We ask all potential participants to explain why they believe their proposal would fit in this Festival. This is an all-volunteer event, thus, without any remuneration. The Festival will provide publicity, an appropriate indoor venue, and a guaranteed interested audience. (All proceeds from sale of tickets will cover Festival expenses and be used for staging future festivals.) If interested, please send either an outline of your proposal, or a few sample pages from your work NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 22, 2006 to either or
