The first organization to specialize in dance presentation in Québec, Tangente (est. 1980) champions emerging choreographers and offers contemporary dance programming from September to May. Each show is a unique experience that opens onto the experimental and the interdisciplinary. Our two intimate and transformable theatre spaces in ÉDIFICE WILDER – Espace danse allow us to ensure that the avant-garde and the alternative scene have a foothold in downtown Montréal.
With the conviction that contemporary art is an essential progressive social force, Tangente contributes to creating a deep and stimulating relationship between artworks, artists and audiences, whom it wishes to leave with a significant and lasting impression. Tangente supports creativity in contemporary dance in its most diverse aesthetics and forms.
