Agora de la Danse


Van Grimde Corps Secrets

Symphonie 5.1 By Philip Szporer Symphonie 5.1

Multimedia experimentation is the driving force behind Symphonie 5.1, a platform for applying video projections as a light source, working to reveal dancers’ bodies, or a sense of them, rather than showing other pre-recorded images alongside them.

An Expanding Discussion: Copyright and Heritage in Dance

On October 2, 2015, lawyers, arts advocates and performing arts professionals gathered at the dance pavilion of the University of Québec in Montréal for a focus day on copyright and dance heritage, hosted by the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault, to discuss a wide range of pertinent legal and ethical questions surrounding dance creation and ownership.


Wherefore Gender

By Jordan Arseneault Situations

Sitting in the Agora on opening night between a trained dancer seeing Stamos’s work for the first time and an established sound artist familiar with his oeuvre, I couldn’t help but see Situations as a sequel to Husk, with much of its symphonic elements, but also something new: a twinge of indeterminacy.

Somewhere Between Maybe

New work by Vancouver’s Dana Gingras premieres at Agora de la danse in Montréal, February 11-13.


Dream Interpretation

By Lucy M. May 6,3 Évanouissements

With all the improbabilities of a Haruki Murakami novel, 6,3 Évanouissements leads us on a playful chase through the back door of the theatre before we arrive in our seats. Once sedentary, our perspective on the stage is reconfigured from moment to moment.


Le délire domestique

By Philip Szporer Le Délire Domestique

Le délire domestique by choreographer Deborah Dunn is an often absurd piece that is a response to a culture of division and the politics of domestic labour.


Creaturely Empathy: Intimacy, Sensation & Duration

Antonija Livingstone with Jennifer Lacey, Dominique Pétrin, Stephen Thompson By Lucy M. May Culture, Administration & Trembling Festival TransAmériques 2014

Through the backstage area, we tiptoe in our socks into L’Agora de la danse. It has become a de facto gallery space for the performance of Culture, Administration & Trembling. Europe-based, North American choreographers Antonija Livingstone and Jennifer Lacey, with Dominique Pétrin and Stephen Thompson, are at once its curators and its artists.

A Solo of Ritual and Change

Lucie Grégoire embodies concepts of metamorphosis, ritual, survival, and tragedy in her solo creation Ciel et cendres.

Living Breathing Dance

By Philip Szporer

It’s rare that a dance artist means so much to so many people. Margie Gillis is that exception.
