BOOM in Montreal: "An explosion of sound, vision and song!"
"For almost two hours, Miller powers through 25 years and some hundred voices… All the while he perfectly calibrates his performance with a truly dazzling cascade of imagery... A fascinating, kaleidoscopic overview of an era... I was mesmerized!" (Jim Burke, Montreal Gazette)

BOOM, the most presented new work in Canada, explodes into the Segal Centre from March 20th - April 10th, 2016. After runs in Toronto, London, Victoria, Edmonton, Whitehorse, Halifax, Markham, Vancouver and Ottawa, the Kidoons/WYRD multimedia show finally comes to Montreal, the hometown of its creator, director and performer Rick Miller.
For 3 weeks, we'll be BOOMing onstage, and building online partnerships with local organizations who connect to our themes of history, culture, technology and ecology. We're also proud to continue our ongoing outreach campaign: "Your Stories". After our post-show talkbacks, we record short stories from audience members, and add them to an ever-expanding tapestry of tales that help connect us together as Canadians at encyclopediacanada.com. If you have a story to share, you can do it here.
