Festival TransAmériques (FTA) is an international performing arts festival dedicated to the most contemporary expressions of dance and theatre. Since its first edition in 1985, it has sought out bold, distinctive artistic work and fresh perspectives.

Located in Montreal/Tio’tia:ke/Mooniyang, FTA pursues an ongoing dialogue with the city and its history, theatres, and neighbourhoods. It attracts and engages with diverse audiences, which it aims to expand and draw closer.

As a coproducing festival, FTA supports the development and circulation of new work by Quebec, Canadian, and Indigenous artists, striving to establish the best possible conditions for it to flourish. The Festival aims to strengthen local artistic communities by offering spaces for sharing and mutual inspiration.

Through presenting shows from home and abroad, FTA fosters the growth of our imagination and honours the complexity of the world. The Festival initiates memorable discoveries and powerful experiences that connect emotion with knowledge. FTA is a celebration of the performing arts taking place at springtime each year.
