Festival Quartiers Danses
The mission of the Festival Quartiers Danses (FQD) is to democratize contemporary dance and bring it to places where it is not: in the streets, parks, public markets, museums, daycares and community organizations. For its 19th edition, from September 8 to 19, 2021, the FQD presents 18 creations and world premieres with 57 performers and 18 choreographers from Montreal. Among those who will present their work are Jeanne Renaud, Margie Gillis, as well as festival regulars such as choreographers Véronique Giasson, Pauline Gervais, James Viveiros with Sara Hanley and Jérémy Galdeano with Vera Kvarcakova. In addition, there are 54 free urban performances featuring emerging and established choreographers during the 12 days of the festival in different locations such as Place des Festivals to the Sud-Ouest, including Museum Avenue and McCord Museum's Urban Forest.
