Nous (ne) sommes (pas) tous des danseurs.

Sophie Corriveau | In collaboration with Katya Montaignac

May 6 to 8, 2016 at 6 PM

Rencontre avec les artistes : No Jeudi-causerie for this event.

After two years in residency at Agora de la danse, and over thirty years in dance, Sophie Corriveau is once again undertaking the Traces Interprètes project, a unique and unprecedented creative platform offered by Danse-Cité. Through an original artistic proposition focusing on the profession of the dancer, Sophie Corriveau lends voice and body to different dancers, sharing a series of singular accounts of real-life experiences.

Addressing a multi-generational community of dancers, Sophie Corriveau and Katya Montaignac open the discussion, outlining the foundations and inner workings of the dancer’s profession, along with the accompanying myths. A field for new experiences, this atypical project proposes a way of being together in a performance space in which everyone participates. An adventure featuring meetings and discoveries shared with the public.

The dancer is an author, creating a work in tandem with that of the choreographer. Through the dancer’s body, viewers unlock their own imaginations.”  – Sophie Corriveau, for Frédérique Doyon, Le Devoir, May 2015
