The Centre de Création O Vertigo
We would like to begin by acknowledging that the Centre de Création O Vertigo – CCOV is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
Located in the heart of Montreal’s Place des Arts, the Centre de Création O Vertigo – CCOV provides dance artists with access to its studio, a space devoted entirely to experimentation and creation. With its short- and long-term residency programs, it allows local artists to produce high-quality, world-class works. The CCOV also presents a number of outreach and promotional activities for members of the dance community and public at large: performances, labs, traineeships, roundtables, etc., which make the CCOV a focal point for exchanges and artistic reflections, an incubator and catalyst for ideas and new talent.
