Tour March 2005

For the first time in North America, the cult Swiss-German favourites Les Reines Prochaines will be presenting their latest performance piece Halluzination in Canada, in March 2005.

The musical performance troupe Les Reines Prochaines was established in 1987 by several artists, among them Pipilotti Rist and Muda Mathis. Pioneers of Swiss feminist performance, the collective works of Les Reines Prochaines have been revered in several European countries. They have recorded over five original albums and produced multiple videos.
Their last performance piece Halluzination was a huge success in Europe with stops in Spain, Germany, Austria, France, and Switzerland, before being presented in Québec, Montréal and Ottawa.
This project has been made possible with the help of Pro Helvetia, la Fondation Suisa pour la musique, Studio 303, Galerie La Centrale, Groupe Intervention Vidéo (GIV), La Bande vidéo, Saw Gallery, The Swiss Consulat General in Montreal, GeoLogistics, Omya and Europack. We are proud to present Halluzination with one solo exhibition in Montréal and two artist talk evenings in Montréal and Québec. Artists Muda Mathis, Sus Zwick, Michèle Fuchs, Fränzi Madörin, Barbara Naegelin and Tina Z'Rotz, who make up the group Les Reines Prochaines will all be in attendance.
