Rencontres in Montréal

In 2017, EDN representatives visited the newly opened Édifice Wilder which hosts key contemporary dance organisations: l'Agora de la danse, les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, Tangente and l'École de danse contemporaine de Montréal. This encounter brought together EDN members with their peers from the CanDance Network. The Rencontres in Montreal at L’Agora de la Danse focused on how a dance house and/or institution mediates between artists and their audiences/communities.

European - Canadian artistic exchange

Emerging Encounters Canada

A direct outcome of the 2017 visit to Montréal was the 3-week programme for artists that took place in May 2019. Loosely inspired by the Colina residencies produced by O Espaço do Tempo, the nine emerging artists from Europe and Canada gathered in Montreal for a creative exchange that focused on sharing practice and engaging with new ways of thinking about dance making.
