This week on on Cinq à Six we think about the future of traditional art forms.
We speak to the people behind the MSO's multi-dimensional installation at the futuristic SATosphere dome at the Société des Arts Technologiques, and get Maestro Kent Nagano's feelings about mixing his symphonic music with video art.
Writers, bloggers, publishers and booksellers have spent part of the week in a blue-sky contemplation of one of our most defining cultural forms: literature. Panelists Katia Grubisic, the Canada Council`s Arash Mohtashami-Maali and Christopher diRaddo bring some of the discussion to our studio.
And we take you behind the scenes of the world premiere of the play Unseamly, which rips apart the seams of the retail fashion industry and examines the complex sexual dynamics behind fashion marketing.

February in Quebec. The darkest night of our polar, poutine-sodden soul.
Last weekend's Groundhog Day brought a 2-1 verdict:
Puxsutawney Phil and Wiarton Willie cast their beady, clairvoyant eyes upon their shadows
Nova Scotia's Shubenacadie Sam saw warm sunny skies ahead.
Winter persists, and here at CinqàSix, we've decided to explore the underground where Montrealers keep warm and life goes on.
Today on the show we'll meet Soundwalk researcher and composer Andra McCartney. She was inspired by Quebec's first science fiction novel Surreal 3000, about a society of people living under the streets of Montreal for 1000 years.
And while we're on the subject of underground economy, we investigate the cultural implications of the Bitcoin as it gains momentum.
We'll also uncover the light at the end of the underground railroad, rediscovering the Jazz scene of Little Burgundy with interactive filmmakers David Eng and Katarina Soukup.
