Our artistic vision is to present on our stages a diversity of forms, of ideas, and of emerging dance artists’ current preoccupations. Witness to the evolution of trends in the performing arts, we define ourselves as a space where inventiveness, exploration, and the desire to see an idea through to the end are encouraged and valued.

Depending on your profile, one of two options is available: Danses Buissonnières, for recently graduated dance artists, or the open call for local artists.

Danses Buissonnières 2023

Danses Buissonnières is an annual program presented by Tangente, dedicated to choreographers in the early stages of their career, whether they have recently graduated or are self-taught.

Over 4 consecutive evenings, as part of its 2023-2024 season, Tangente will present the work of 5 selected emerging choreographers and/or collectives. This program will take place from October 7 to 10, 2023 in Espace Dena Davida (Espace Vert – 65 seats) of ÉDIFICE WILDER – Espace danse. The load-in day will be on Wednesday, September 27, 2023.

Tangente assists the artists as they experience the entire process of producing, mounting, and presenting their performance. The professional choreographers/collectives will be chosen with care after interviews and the examination of their project by a jury of emerging choreographers with diverse artistic visions. Selected works must be new, must not have been previously presented, and must be no more than 10 minutes.

Call for artists for the 2024-2025 season

The next project submission will take place in the fall of 2023. Take this opportunity to get in touch with the curatorial team and discuss what you’d like to explore!

About our curators

Our curators maintain an open-door policy, continuously holding conversations with emerging local choreographers, attending performances of their work, and visiting them in the studio. Any artist interested in presenting their work at Tangente is invited to submit a project through our annual open call. Before submitting a project, we invite you to talk about it with one of our curators. The final selection of artistic projects is made by the curatorial team. The clarity, relevance, and originality of the theme or of the reflection, as well as the coherence and the command of the proposal and of the process, are the main selection criteria. In the context of LABdiff, curators may be present to provide support at all stages (formulation of the research question, references, intermediaries, etc.), help connect artists with resources if needed (outside eye, dramaturg, set designer, etc.), and facilitate encounters and exchanges with the public. Artists have full freedom with respect to their creation. Tangente offers technical and promotional support, as well as a guaranteed fee, but doesn’t intervene in any way in the artistic content.
