Centaur Theatre Presents the Wildside Festival in collaboration with La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines

The Wildside continues to be an important opportunity to celebrate innovation in performance. This year we are excited to present work by some of Montreal’s most exciting independent theatre creators, in our ongoing effort to support experimentation and cutting edge performance practice in our city.

Rose Plotek, Curator

“This edition of the Wildside Festival confirms the relevance of the collaboration between the Centaur Theatre and La Chapelle.  Renewing this pleasure of participating in the interdisciplinary living art offer in both languages with a precious partner like the Centaur is a real pleasure. Wishing everybody a fantastic Festival and looking forward to welcoming you.”

Olivier Bertrand – Director of La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines

Still Life

Jan 18 – 20, 2024

Still Life is both a brilliant study of a writer struggling with general anxiety disorder, and a scathing criticism of performance-oriented culture. It proposes that art can heal and provide hope.


Jan 30-31, Feb 1-3, 2024

A darkly absurd fable about the trials of a woman and her ten-year-old son who move to Montreal to rebuild their lives, only to have their relationship tested by a mysterious arrival at their doorstep.

Choose Your End

Jan 26-27, 2024

With a Casio keyboard and the internet, we make videos and original music about the things that scare us most: sentient AI, environmental collapse, the end of civilization; the future. It’s gonna be a blast!


January 21, 2024 

Confabulation, Montreal’s original all-true storytelling series, is back at Wildside with another evening of stories, shared by the people who lived them! 

Music Series

Feb 2-3, 2024

Folk-rock band Sarah Segal and the Lasers take to the stage to bring you “Montreal Music”––songs about our fair city. Come out and enjoy songs you already know and love––and discover some new favourites as well! Stay tuned for special guests announced leading up to the shows!

Plays for the End of the World

Jan 21  @ 3PM

A debut project by Scaredy Cat Theatre, “Plays for the End of the World” is a collection of dark yet comedic short plays that boldly confront the dread and helplessness of our contemporary existence.
