An Evening with Munn and Diamond

PME (Quebec, Canada)
Unrehearsed Beauty / Le genie des Autres

The latest performance by the anarchic Canadian collective PME is a cabaret in the form of rock band. They play songs, even if not as well as they should, and offer a chance to speak quietly about the things which really matter.

" Part dance, part social critique, part heady f**king around...PME interrogates the idea of performance itself. But it never fails to be that performance and a damn good one...God Bless Canada." - The Village Voice, New York
