From April 4 to 29, 2018, Place des Arts invites you to immerse yourself in an unforgettable Printemps nordique, a major artistic and cultural event designed to help you discover the great creative vitality of the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) and to highlight their values of cooperation, humanism and environmental awareness. A wide array of shows will be staged for the occasion. Theatre, contemporary opera, dance, circus, music, and puppets will introduce the public and Montréal professionals to talented artists from the region and deepen the ties between the Québécois and Nordic cultures. With more than 80 international artists, 25 performances and 15 free activities – such as roundtables, master classes, and public talks – audiences will be able to immerse themselves in the social and cultural dimensions of the countries of Northern Europe. An unprecedented artistic and cultural event for Québec. This event, initiated and produced by Place des Arts, is being made possible thanks to the financial support of important partners: Nordic Culture Point, the Nordisk KulturFond and the Place des Arts Foundation.
