Founded in Montreal in 1982, Danse-Cité is a creation, production and distribution company dedicated to the advancement of contemporary dance. At the forefront of Montreal’s cutting-edge dance scene, the company has earned a richly deserved reputation by presenting unique works and shows that take risks, and by placing artists (mostly emergent) front and centre. Under the artistic direction of Daniel Soulières, Danse-Cité has a unique structure in that it does not deal with a resident choreographer, a team of dan­cers or any permanent venue.

Danse-Cité just closed her 37th season!

Also available for touring :
LA VIE ATTEND, a creation byDavid Albert-Toth & Emily Gualtieri – Parts+Labour_Danse
NORMAL DESIRES, a creation by Emile Pineault
EL SILENCIO DE LAS COSAS PRESENTES, a creation by Eduardo Ruiz Vergara

Danse-Cité is thus the incarnation and the live and vibrant expression of the character and cultural identity of Montreal.
