Free and wild thinking is alive and well in this second edition of the FTA Clinics. In a feverish global context, it is difficult to create and present works without taking into account the convulsions of current affairs. What is the political and socioeconomic climate facing artists? What is the sense of urgency? How do we navigate between responsibility, nonchalance and liberty?

Our guests — dramaturges, translators, researchers, artists — will tackle these questions in lively conversations resonating with voices from near and far, and from contrasting creative contexts. In addition to this forum of ideas, our “clinicians” will provide private consultations, offering support and guidance to contemporary creation. FTA Clinics jolt our ways of thinking, the better to grasp the present.

Moderators Émilie Martz-Kuhn + Jessie Mill

Open to professional stage artists — performers, choreographers, directors, dramaturges, writers, set designers — the Master classes are an occasion for artistic enrichment, an opportunity to rejuvenate one’s aesthetic approach.

The classes offer stimulating encounters with major artists in Montreal for the Festival, a chance to develop new creative tools and innovative approaches while exploring a singular aesthetic universe free of the dictates of performance. Share know-how and creative ideas with other artists of varying disciplines and aesthetics, of different generations and backgrounds. Develop new momentum, a fresh approach to your creative process.

Registration deadline: April 22, 2018
