This project marks a historic turning point for the dance arts in all of their traditional and contemporary forms. Beginning in winter 2017, four of Montréal’s leading organizations, have moved into the Édifice Wilder at the place des Festivals:
- Tangente and the Agora de la danse, two vital contemporary dance presenting organizations, with their respective programming and artistic residencies
- L’École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, with pedagogical programmes for both amateurs and professionals
- Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, with rehearsal and creation activities, and dance therapy programme.
A centre for learning, creating, presenting and more, the Wilder will become THE dance destination for Montréal. It offers a large range of services for professionals, the public and the community.
Conveniently located next to Place des Festivals and with a unique architectural signature, the Wilder Building is an ideal site for the presentation of artistic, corporate or private events. It offers 5 versatile spaces for rent (availability varies depending on the season). Spaces can be rented for a day, an evening or for longer periods, and are readily adapted to welcome business meetings, video shoots, breakfast conferences, private receptions, press launches, cocktail receptions, wedding receptions, benefit galas, etc. They are also available for artists or companies looking for a venue to produce or present a show. Let our team help you make your event a resounding success!
A historical building
Situated at the corner of rue De Bleury and rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest, the Wilder building was originally built in 1918, according to the original architectural blueprints of Charles R. Tetley. In the beginning, The Wilder was the property of a Montreal furniture manufacturer and merchant, and the building bears its name. It is the consortium of architects Lapointe Magne + AEdifica who designed the plans and carried out the major transformation of the building, for this LEED project whose construction began on March 3, 2014.
