Sunday Feature: Beyond The Mountain

Paradise Lost

Montreal to the World

Beyond the Mountain presents its mandate
by Danielle-Ariel Caddell-Malenfant

On July 5th 2011, Beyond the Mountain Productions celebrated its launch at the Rialto Theatre in Montreal.

Beyond the Mountain is a non-profit Montreal based theatre company. Its mission is to use methods of new technology as well as live performances to internationally disseminate works by Montreal artists while bringing new productions from around the world to the city. By touring emerging artists, working with schools and making use of new social media to circulate our work, the company aims to raise Montreal's cultural profile and aid its artists to create a larger impact on the international art scene.

Beyond the Mountain Production’s next project is to take Paul Van Dyck’s critically acclaimed show Paradise Lost to the 2011 edition of the Atlantic Fringe Festival in Halifax, Nova Scotia this coming September.  Following the show’s whopping success when the company produced it earlier this winter at the Frigid Festival in New York City (it received the best of the festival award as well as a sold out award), the show has been invited to return to the Big Apple in January 2012 to be performed at the prestigious Association of Performing Artists Presents (APAP) conference.

All of the funds collected during the company’s launch will be put toward financing these two upcoming projects.  For those who may have either missed the launch or would like to help, Beyond the Mountain has recently launched a fundraising campaign through IndieGoGo.  Anyone may donate in whichever capacity and every penny will go a long way.  The campaign is available through their website.

In April 2012 BTM productions will produce “Now and at the Hour” at the Rialto Theatre.  From San Francisco, California, this solo show is written and performed by Christian Cagigal; an actor and magician voted best of the Bay by the S.F. Bay Guardian.  In 2012 the production of a documentary film of “Now and at the Hour” will take place.

Beyond the Mountain Productions was conceived by John Abbott College graduate Danielle-Ariel Caddell-Malenfant and recently added to the management roster is Sara Rodriguez.
