Théâtre Rialto


Carte Blanche is a performance platform which highlights and stimulates diversity in dance practices, approaches and philosophies within the professional Montreal dance community. The event unites dance professionals from across the city while presenting excerpts and short works in contemporary ballet, contemporary dance, urban dance, circus, short dance films (cinédanse) and more.


Carte Blanche provides the dance professionals of our community with an annual meeting place, a cross roads to connect and network with artists from a variety of professional dance forms and companies. In presenting Carte Blanche, Danse à la Carte wishes to encourage choreographers and artists to take artistic liberties and risks, explore new fusions, partnerships and to further investigate their distinct artistic signatures. We welcome presenters, directors and agents from across the Montreal dance community and beyond to offer the highest form of visibility to our artists and collectives.


The performance is followed by a huge party in the stunning house of the Rialto Théâtre

(live dj music, cocktails and more).
