Tangente: archives


A major player in contemporary dance in Montreal, Tangente has offered audiences bold and innovative annual programming for 35 years. Since its founding, more than 1,500 artists over three generations have enjoyed support in developing and presenting shows.

Between the official opening of its doors at 1602 boulevard Saint-Laurent and its integration into the Espace danse project in the Wilder Building, several venues hosted Tangente and allowed the presentation of shows. Tangente presents here three historical archives.
