Submit a project

With our arrival in Édifice Wilder – Espace danse, our renewed artistic vision aims to support emerging, local artists (though not exclusively) in the earlier phases of creating their own performance works. We favour imaginative strategies for audience engagement and experimental work that questions traditional forms of presentation.

Depending on your profile, one of two options is available: New Waves, for freshly graduated dance artists, or the open call for local artists.

Call for artists for the 2021-2022 season

The deadline for the 2021-2022 season is May 1st, 2020. Our curating committee will make final choices and responses will be sent no later than eight weeks after the application deadline.

Priority is given to local artists. The international projects that are part of our season are carried out in collaboration with partnering organizations that are part of Tangente’s national and international networks. However, if you come to Montréal, we would be happy to meet you.

Danses Buissonnières 2019

Danses Buissonnières is an annual program presented by Tangente dedicated to choreographers in the early stages of their career, wether they are freshly graduated or self-taught.
During 4 nights in a row, as part as its 2019-20 season, Tangente will present the work of 5 selected choreographers/collectives. This program will take place in September 2019 at Edifice Wilder – Espace danse in Espace Dena Davida (Espace vert – 65 seats).
Tangente will also accompagny the artists as they will experience the entire process of producing, mounting and presenting their performance.
The 5 contenders will be chosen with care after live auditions and the examination of their project by a jury of emerging choreographers with diverse artistic visions. The presented works must be no more than 10 minutes and must have been especially created for the Danses Buissonnières program.
