Godspeed You! Black Emperor have announced two Montreal performances of monumental, their collaboration with Vancouver-based experimental dance troupe Holy Body Tattoo, to take place at Place des Arts in April of next year. The local dates follow the first presentation of monumental in Vancouver, previously announced alongside North American tour dates for the band in January and February; the group will take the show to Quebec City on April 15.
 
Vancouver’s PuSh Festival, producing the first of the monumental performances, describe the work as follows:
 

monumental, with nine dancers mounted on pedestals and the eight-piece band, is the expression of the madness of urban life—the repetition, the confinement, the alienation. Movement turns into metaphor, dance into poetry and sound into substance. The result is as violent, beautiful and cathartic as art can get. For fans of the band, lovers of contemporary dance, or anyone open to the most radical possibilities of human creativity, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that can’t be missed.

 
See below for dates for the monumental performance; full Godspeed tour dates are listed here.
