The SAT may be
established at the heart of Montreal’s downtown map, it still gives its support
to the growing movement in favor of the environment. Therefore, next April 22,
the SAT hosts a major, environment-friendly event that will last from 9pm to
3am. Le Jour de la Terre/Earth Day launches E=MC2, a community fundraiser for
urban re-greening and local environmental organizations. It will feature DJ
Robert de la Gauthier, who is also the event’s Artistic Director. The
legendary turntablist and producer convinced some old friends of his to make
an action for a good cause. So you will see the very famous Akufen and
DJ The Mole behind the deck, gathering dancers
with a… green foot. Inspired visuals provided by the imaginative mind of Ladyroll
will add a zest of excitement and so will dance collective Aurora Borealis‘
and percussion troupe Samajam‘s performances. Expect a night
you, for the other, for the planet
More than a fundraiser, this event is also a Dance-O-Thon. You can buy a ticket,
or use our pledge form to get your social or professional entourage to support
you—and the environment—for every hour danced. This way, you can finance the
purchase of your ticket. Pledge can be found at www.emc2mtl.com.
Tickets are on sale at SAT at the rate of $25.

of the Danse-O-Thon took their inspiration in E=MC2’s promise of mouvement
and chain reaction. A single person can initiate an action that will change
something. In saving the Earth, every move can count!
