A vital fixture in the Québec cultural landscape, Agora de la danse is a cherished place for artists and fans of contemporary dance. A major presenter with a solidly established reputation, Agora de la danse invests in creation by offering artist residencies and encourages experimentation and innovation. For the past 24 years, it has offered steadfast support in the progress of this seductive and vibrant art form and has left an indelible mark on the great dynamism of contemporary dance.
Congratulation to DAINA ASHBEE who was awarded the PRIX DÉCOUVERTE at the 2016 PRIX DE LA DANSE DE MONTRÉAL.
This prize is presented by Agora de la danse and Tangente.
Congratulations also to SOPHIE CORRIVEAU, for the PRIX INTERPRÈTE.
From 2014 to 2016, Sophie was the dancer-in-residence at Agora de la danse, which led to the “danced roundtables” of Nous (ne) sommes (pas) tous des danseurs, an atypical project jointly conceived by Katya Montaignac, in which 17 dancers explored issues related to the art of dance and the profession of dancer.
