A major player on the contemporary dance scene since 1980, Tangente – Laboratoire de mouvements contemporains supports innovative dance in all of its aesthetic orientations and diverse, expanded, and interdisciplinary forms.
Located downtown in a building dedicated to dance, Tangente works primarily on programming a dance season featuring promising young choreographers, but also organizes symposia, educational projects, and public workshops.
With our arrival in Édifice Wilder – Espace danse, our renewed artistic vision aims to support emerging, local artists (though not exclusively) in the earlier phases of creating their own performance works. We favour imaginative strategies for audience engagement and experimental work that questions traditional forms of presentation.
Tangente allows artists to present a short or long work as part of a double bill that brings together projects that share characteristics, practices, a vision. This signature programming outlook is the corner stone of the live arts curatorial concept that distinguishes Tangente from many other Montréal presenters.
Being presented at Tangente means benefiting from exceptional support from the technical team, the communications team, and our box office team.
