Harbourfront Centre is a leading international centre for contemporary arts, culture and ideas, and a registered, charitable not-for-profit cultural organization operating a 10-acre campus on Toronto’s central waterfront. Harbourfront Centre provides year-round programming 52 weeks a year, seven days a week, supporting a wide range of artists and communities. We inspire audiences and visitors with a breadth of bold, ambitious and engaging experiences. We champion contemporary Canadian artists throughout their careers, presenting them alongside international artists and fostering national and international artistic exchange between disciplines and cultures.
Our long-standing commitment to contemporary dance artists, choreographers and companies, has made Harbourfront Centre a dance destination.
Torque, Harbourfront Centre’s international contemporary dance series, presents some of the world’s most innovative choreographers and dancers on our stages. Torque’s season, inaugurated in 2018/2019, presents local, national and international contemporary dance companies’ works to a broad and diverse Toronto dance appreciative audience.
The Performing Arts Technical Residency Program supports the development of artistic creations within the genres of dance, theatre, circus and inter-disciplinary work, with the intent to potentially present final works once they are fully realized.  These technical residencies provide production support in a theatre venue at a stage of development of a project when working in such a venue is beneficial to the process. Typical residencies are one week long, and select applications may receive additional financial support. The application process opens in the Fall for selection for the following season.
