The mission of the Festival Quartiers Danses (FQD) is to democratize contemporary dance and bring it to places where it is not: in the streets, parks, public markets, museums, daycares and community organizations. For its 19th edition, from September 8 to 19, 2021, the FQD presents 18 creations and world premieres with 57 performers and 18 choreographers from Montreal. Among those who will present their work are Jeanne Renaud, Margie Gillis, as well as festival regulars such as choreographers Véronique Giasson, Pauline Gervais, James Viveiros with Sara Hanley and Jérémy Galdeano with Vera Kvarcakova.

The urban program of Festival Quartiers Danses will feature seventy-four performances by twenty-one Montreal choreographers in seven key locations throughout Montreal. The original pieces will be performed at Place des Festivals, Jardins Gamelin, Place du Marché at the Atwater Market, the McCord Museum’s Urban Forest, the Avenue of the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA), Bernard Street in Outremont, and Lien Nord on the Lachine Canal.
