Information on the activity
May 22, 2019 to June 4, 2019
The biggest performing arts festival in North America, the Festival TransAmériques is a driving force for the promotion of contemporary theatre and dance. The FTA delves deep into artistic disciplines, probing their limits in its quest for bold, outstanding artistic voices.
Its policy is a pact with the present, i.e. to support creative artists by presenting and co-producing contemporary theatre and dance pieces, works that reinterpret the world we live in, that shed light on our times. Featuring shows from all over the world, the FTA mirrors political and social movements of our era, as echoed in striking and essential works of art. With its featured presentations and the FTA Playground series of related activities, the FTA is an aspirational force that creates synergies between the arts, communities and festivalgoers.
