OFF Performances

We offer a guide of dance and theatre performances taking place in Montreal during FTA, including all contact details for reservations.

What is the Guide des spectacles en off?

The Guide is FTA’s contribution to promoting Quebec artists’ work in dance and theater. No selection is made, no hierarchy is implied; all activities are listed by date. The information included is provided by the artists and companies themselves, and the Guide does not claim to be exhaustive. The information is gathered every year through an open call from FTA within its networks and with the main professional associations.

What kinds of activities are included?

Dance and theater shows, performances, works in progress, public presentations, labs… Projects by professional artists, including those presented at OFFTA and in the Montreal theaters’ regular season.
