Night Shift at Casa

The FVA’s Legendary Open Mics

Starting at 11:00 pm during the festival, night owls will gather at the Casa for the Night Shift. Every evening, a fabulous house band will accompany our three guest poets, followed by an open mic. Everyone—from the known to the soon-to-be-known—is welcome to perform poems, songs or other work in English, French or any other language. The only rule: you must perform your own texts (go ahead, be brave!). You will have the stage for three minutes and the musicians won’t let you down. Open mic registrations begin at 10 pm at the Casa del Popolo with host Ivy. Come early, places are limited.


in the age of exhaustion
there are still a few night owls on the prowl
stop by to hear some of Quebec’s finest poets
spin their magic with two talented musicians
and if you want to show us what you’re made of
Ivy will hand you the open mic
