Our mission

We forge encounters between audiences and artists through the presentation of surprising works that are the result of in-depth research. We offer choreographers professional support, access to a performance space, technical assistance, promotional tools as well as guaranteed artists’ fees. As for spectators, we propose multi-dimensional experiences on a human scale, and at an affordable price. It is through our Culture+ programme that we are also developing, in close collaboration with the artists, educational activities for schools, professionals and dance audiences.

The artists programmed for our 2016-2017 season have been selected by our curator Dena Davida, along with our artistic and advisory council of Kathy Casey and Mélissa Larivière.

Our statement

We believe that the worldviews of artists serve as a catalyst and vital force in society, At the heart of the practice of contemporary dance lies the most important and significant moment, when the work is brought into a theatre and performed before a live audience. Live art is a cultural, artistic and social phenomenon. A phenomenon which brings all of its actors into collaborative relationships: creators, performers, artistic collaborators, spectators, stage crews, granting agents, artists’ agents, critics and researchers, teachers and students, presenters, curators and « cultural mediators » alike. It is by way of their interactions that the “dance event” taken on its full significance.

Our values

Risk-taking - Collaboration - Inventiveness - Generosity - Intimacy
