FINDing A New Direction In Montreal

Montreal has a new dance festival to replace the collapsed Festival Internationale de Nouvelle Danse (FIND), and it will apparently have a theatrical component as well. Marie-Hélène Falcon, the artistic director of the new fest, is a big name in the Quebec theatre world. “[Her] winning proposal was determined by a rigorous open competition. The key to success was proposing an event that would satisfy the expectations of the dance community.” The CAN$1.8 million budget reserved for FIND will go to the new festival.
