The OFFTA is an artistic event created by Montreal artists on the edge of the Festival TransAmériques. The OFFTA offers a multidisciplinary program centered on contemporary creation and the encounter of various art forms. The OFFTA distinguishes itself by an artistic direction that favours singular initiatives, emerging practices, interdisciplinary works and experimentation. The OFFTA is not only a showcase of the vitality and creativity of the artistic community, but also a platform for exchanges between artists from different disciplines and horizons. As such, the OFFTA aspires to decompartmentalize contemporary artistic practices along with their respective audiences. As a promoter, the OFFTA facilitates access to art and offers the chance to discover creators who explore the liminal space between dance, theatre, performance and visual arts, seek adventure in unexplored artistic terrains and forecast new relations between creators and the audience. In this vision of disciplinary mixture, the OFFTA produces special hybrid events: the MIXOFFs. Imagined by the artistic direction, they aim to shake up the established practices of the performing arts and question modes of representation. As a promoter, the OFFTA encourages the discovery of new artists and facilitates an organic mixing of audiences, critics and national and international promoters.
