Families & Young Audiences

From the outset, Agora has organized dance-related activities aimed specifically at young audiences, families and schools and indeed, young audiences have contributed to the growth of new dance pieces for that sector. Several student matinees and workshops are presented during the season to enrich the dance experience for youngsters. How best can we prepare for the future than by developing, in all sorts of ways, the interests of the young for choreography?

Unique rendezvous with artists

Dance-related activities all year long. Agora de la danse offers many activities to a public curious about new ways of interacting with contemporary dance. Come into the studio and chat with the artists, attend a public rehearsal or take part in a movement workshop.


Lunchtime art. During lunch hour, attend a rehearsal and see the creative process in action one week before the première. This exclusive peek at an upcoming show is followed by a discussion with the creative team about the ideas and techniques pursued during the rehearsal. Who knows? Your feedback might have an influence on the final artistic decisions. From 12:15 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.

Meet the Artists

Post-show encounters. A series of interdisciplinary discussions full of opinions and unruly voices. Meet the artists on Thursday evenings after the performance.

Following on a workshop entitled «The Place of Women in Theatre» held at ESPACE GO in April 2019, Agora is reaching out to its female colleagues in the theatre milieu by inviting them to moderate post-show discussions in winter 2019 in order to pursue an important cause, especially given that the dance milieu is predominantly female.
