Le Diamant Theater
SDA and Ex Machina partner to create a new international performing arts center. Read more
When Quebec’s top theatre companies need project management expertise to help design new performance spaces they know where to turn: SDA. Just ask Montreal’s Théâtre de la Manufacture, resident company of Théâtre La Licorne, and international sensation Robert Lepage’s Ex Machina in Quebec City.
SDA has worked with Ex Machina since 2011, helping the company secure financing and providing project coordination and management services for the construction of Théâtre Le Diamant.
Located in Place d’Youville at the heart of Old Quebec, the 650 seat multipurpose venue will host international productions from circuses to opera in a setting that marries the ultimate in creativity with the latest in technology. The facility will also house other arts-related entities and businesses.
The purchase of three buildings in Place d’Youville was completed in fall 2011, thanks in part to the involvement of Fondaction. In 2012 Société de développement Angus coordinated the functional and technical aspects of the building program. Now we are working with Ex Machina to finalize construction financing.
By locating Le Diamant next to two other venues, the Capitole and Palais Montcalm, Ex Machina and SDA are helping recast Place d’Youville as a true theatre hub that will attract world-class productions to Quebec City.
