Phénomena theme 2019: Transmission

Phénomena is a bilingual interdisciplinary festival that seeks to highlight innovative, extravagant, and unclassifiable artists. The Festival presents cabarets, whimsical and theatrical acts, performances with projections, happenings, performative dance, installations, and poetic events. Phénomena’s 8th edition will be held from October 15th to 26th, 2019. Click here to see clips from the Festival’s previous edition.

Guided by experimentation and risk-taking, Phénomena is interested in professional artists, either emerging or established, with a very personal approach, as well as in independent and nonconformist creation companies. We offer a platform to artists who are rigorous, take risks and challenge themselves. We seek to present poetic and atypical hybrid creations that provide moving, authentic performances.

We are on the lookout for interdisciplinary creations that are past the workshop phase, but that have not necessarily been widely distributed. It is essential for us to see the work of artists we believe to be a good fit for the Festival; as such, our programming cycle has expanded to two years. We strongly encourage artists to present their projects in advance and to invite us to witness new steps along the way. This process will help us give artists the support they need and will ensure the consistency of our programming.

Send us your proposal which must include:
• CV or description of your company;
• Project description (2 pages maximum), including spatial and technical needs, confirmed collaborators, duration of performance, and a list of resources already secured;
• Links to photos and videos illustrating your work;
• Production timeline.

We also want to know why your creation project should be presented at Phénomena in particular. We are driven by an artistic mission and seek projects that are in line with this mission and will also help the Festival evolve. Applications may be written in French or English and performed in any language.

Send your completed proposal to artistic director D. Kimm at and executive assistant Charlie Julien at For any questions and additional information, please contact Charlie Julien by email or by phone at 514 495-1515.
