National and international networks

Tangente has developed collaborations and partnerships across Canada, North and South America, Europe, and Asia. More than fifty choreographers and companies from here and abroad have benefited from choreographic exchanges and tours.

At the national level, Tangente cofounded the CanDanse network, a forum for discussion and networking that now counts forty members across the country. Tangente is also a member of La danse sur les routes du Québec.

Internationally, Tangente has developed relationships with the Arab world during the 2018 edition of the On Marche de Marrakech festival and the 2017 and 2019 editions of the Beirut International Platform of Dance.

Tangente’s attention is particularly turned to places where emerging contemporary dance is quasi-forbidden and sometimes even dangerous to practice.


In the spring of 2019, Tangente joined the Archipel co-op network. Launched and led by the Théâtre Francine Vasse – Les Laboratoires Vivants de la ville de NantesLa Rotonde – Le Groupe danse Partout in Québec City and Al Badil in Tunisia, this unifying and innovative project aims to federate and build lasting bridges between structures and territories to support artistic initiatives and research.
