Founded in 1999, musical and artistic duo Geneviève et Matthieu, have developed a multi-disciplinary approach to their craft which enables them to critique contemporary culture while simultaneously performing it.

For their performance, La Jamésie, Geneviève Crépeau and Matthieu Dumont will be re-creating an interdisciplinary experience combining installation, live music, poetry, video projections and performance to create a spontaneous and immersive experience. La Jamésie is the collective duo’s latest “work-in-progress” which has shown in Quebec, Ontario, Belgium, and France from the years 2011-2015.

Both artists have bachelor’s degrees in visual arts and have been working together since the early 2000’s. They are coordinators of the Artist-Run Centre, L’Ecart, and the Biennale d’art performatif in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, where they live and work.
