The largest performing arts festival in North America, Festival TransAmériques is a driving force for the presentation of contemporary dance and theatre. Delving deep into those artistic disciplines, the FTA probes their limits in its quest for bold, outstanding artistic voices.
Reporting to the Board of Directors and in close collaboration with the Executive Director, the Artistic Director defines the artistic vision of the organization and develops its annual program and all related activities.
The Artistic Director defines the broad outlines of the media image and message, and ensures it is consistently conveyed to partners and to the general public. Working in conjunction with the Executive Director, the Artistic Director defines the major orientations and development strategies of the FTA.
Both share a common vision, and to that end the Artistic Director will carry out the responsibilities of the position, as well as all related tasks and duties, in close collaboration with the Executive Director. Moreover, the Artistic Director will adhere to the Festival’s strategic planning, budget and other parameters approved by the Board.
The Artistic Director is called upon to assume many challenges, including that of maintaining and indeed elevating the Festival’s profile both here and abroad.
