An Exuberant Celebration
The Festival TransAmériques (FTA) which will celebrate its 9th year in 2015 is one of the highlights of summer in Montréal and one of the world’s premier events for contemporary artists working in the worlds of dance, theater, and performance art. The festival is noted for the wide range of artists whose works have been featured—the only common themes being excellence and innovation. Some of the artists whose works were presented in Canada
for the first time include Peter Brooks, Peter Sellars, and Robert Wilson. Among the 27 companies scheduled to perform over 17 days in 2015 are leading troops from Asia and Europe, as well as companies based in Quebec.
