Mange ta rue

Production MOMENTUM and Montréal 375th anniversary

Festival : À nous la rue !

July 18 to 25, 2017 – Montréal

A food truck transformed into a microtheatre that offers a menu of short theatrical performances.

Momentum wants to divert the offer of food trucks that recently appeared in Montréal and offer the public a variety of spiritual foods.

On a menu displayed outside the truck, the spectators choose a dish among fifteen items and a team of three actors and a musician will serve them a generous portion of Montréal’s local flavors.

The performances available on the menu are based on literary works (theater, poetry, song …) that are related to Montreal’s territory and its history.

Our food supply will come from the less frequented, underground and forgotten areas of the Montreal cultural landscape.

Delirium, madness, noise and fury.
And featuring the most charming “waitresses” in town!
