Cinquième Salle

Cinquième Salle

The Cinquième Salle is getting a makeover! On January 3, we began working to improve the experience for audiences, artists, technicians, employees, and all others who frequent the Cinquième Salle when it reopens in the spring of 2023. Thank you for your understanding.

Cinquième Salle is a show venue tailor-made for creators who are seeking encounters with audiences that are curious and open to innovation! Versatile, with many possible configurations, it’s the perfect place for presenting contemporary creations in dance, theatre and music, as well as multimedia performances and all other kinds of shows.

A number of companies and festivals, such as Danse Danse and the Festival Quartiers Danses, present a plethora of contemporary shows here each year.

  • Capacity: 296 to 413 seats depending on configuration.
  • Perfect for: contemporary dance shows, plays, music, multimedia performances.
  • Note:
    • The space has 300 fixed seats and six other rows on mobile platforms with retractable seats (the vomitorium).
    • Four types of stage arrangements (proscenium, theatre in the round, traverse and thrust) can also be variably configured, depending on the desired seating capacity.
