What we do
12 Days of
The Festival Quartiers Danses has made it its mission to democratize contemporary dance in all its forms and hybridities by making it more accessible to all audiences in traditional and unusual venues.
We would like to acknowledge that Festival Quartiers Danses is situated on the unceded territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka people. Tiohtià:ke, also known as Montreal, was also historically a meeting place for many First Nations and continues to be a meeting place for many different cultures. We acknowledge and respect that this land that has been the site of creativity and story-telling of Indigenous people for thousands of years, and are thankful that we are able to create, collaborate, and dance here today.
