Festival TransAmériques (FTA)
The biggest performing arts festival in North America, the Festival TransAmériques is a driving force for the promotion of contemporary theatre and dance. FTA delves deep into artistic disciplines, probing their limits in its quest for bold, outstanding artistic voices.
Its policy is a pact with the present, i.e. to support creative artists by allowing artistic exploration, as well as presenting and co-producing contemporary theatre and dance pieces, works that reinterpret the world we live in, that shed light on our times. Featuring shows from all over the world, FTA mirrors political and social movements of our era, as echoed in striking and essential works of art. With its featured presentations and the FTA Playground series of related activities, FTA is an aspirational force that creates synergies between the arts, communities and festivalgoers.
