Agora de la danse and Wilder building

Montreal, Quebec, 2017

Contemporary and classical dance has always had a special place in the hearts of Montrealers. Talented artists and brilliant choreographers make the metropolis famous internationally. In a desire to create a creative hub and a unique destination, Agora de la danse, the Grands Ballets Canadiens of Montreal, the Montreal Contemporary Dance School and Tangente have come together under one and unique address: The Wilder. Built in 1918, the building was completely renovated according to LEED principles and offers its occupants spacious premises at the cutting edge of technology. The consortium administrating the building used XYZ Cultural Technology to ensure the integration of the audiovisual connection system. In a second phase, Agora de la danse managers chose the XYZ team to equip their premises with modular audio equipment.

Description

XYZ experts have integrated the entire Wilder AV system. Wall plugs were installed in all rooms of the building. The technicians also equipped the building with a general call system. Wilder administrators can deliver public service announcements through loudspeakers in the foyer and boxes. For disseminating information on current and upcoming shows as well as for interior signage, video screens have also been placed in the busiest areas of the building.

Secondly, the Agora de la danse gave XYZ the mandate to equip its various studios with modular sound equipment. The speakers are easily transposable and offer a very high sound quality, regardless of the chosen room configuration. In addition, the intercom communication system facilitates exchanges between the technicians and the control room. Transforming a rehearsal room into a theater is now feasible in a blink of an eye for the Agora personnel.
