Beyond the walls
Bringing together activities designed to enrich the body and the mind, the Culture+ series is open to students, non-professional dance lovers, artists, and managers.
The Tangente experience is much more than sitting in a dark theatre. Each season, you can also find us in parks, galleries, and more. We occupy the public space! Keep up with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to discover special events that will brighten your everyday.
Spotlight on our previous event
HOST AN ARTIST
From March 1st to June 15, Tangente and choreographers Ian Yaworski and Philippe Meunier have participated in the Host an Artist program with a 12-week project that involved 174 students from 3rd to 6th grade from the Lanaudière school. 96 workshops have been given to create a contemporary gig and body percussion choreography. An original soundtrack has been produced by singer/songwriter Dumas. The dance piece was then performed publicly and was also be the subject of a making-of. Mediator Marc Pronovost was overseeing the entire process.
This project is made possible thanks to The Culture in the Schools program and the support of the ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur.

Choreographer Jacques Poulin-Denis
Composer Olivier Girouard
Creative studio Ottoblix
On February 21st, 2017, in the Place-des-Arts metro station, we launched our Winter/Spring Season 2017 with a choreographic installation titled Waltz by artist Jacques Poulin-Denis. This performance was part of the POSSIBLES project developed by LA SERRE – arts vivants to celebrate the 375th anniversary of Montréal.
At the pace of once a month throughout 2017, POSSIBLES presents the work of 12 artists from various artistic disciplines in collaboration with 12 creative partnerships in 12 uncommon Montréal venues. These site-specific events draw our attention to sustainable development. Citizens are invited to express their ideas about what is at stake for the City of Montréal. Their contribution is integrated into the creation of the artworks.
