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

 

A dance about dancers: this is the idea behind a new artistic proposal by performer, instructor and coach Sophie Corriveau in collaboration with interpreter and dramaturge Katya Montaignac.

This “atypical roundtable,” as described on Agora de la danse’s website, is addressed to a a multi-generational community of dancers in a forum where the performers are equal as participants. This becomes relevant when you read the list of performers: Johanna Bienaise, Sarah Bild, Lucie Boissinot, Marc Boivin, Marie Claire Forté, Manon Levac, Marie Mougeolle, Dominique Porte, Enora Rivière, Daniel Soulières, Catherine Tardif, Andrew Turner, Vincent Warren and Jamie Wright – a who’s who in Montréals independent dance scene. 

Corriveau spent two years as resident dancer at Agora de la danse developing the project. Nous (ne) sommes (pas) tous des danseurs. is a co-production with Danse-Cité and runs May 6 through 8.

Traces-Interprètes

Unique and without precedent, this series reverses established conventions by conferring the responsibility of an artistic project upon one or several dancers, rather than on a choreographer. Interpreters thus have the opportunity to challenge themselves in new ways by taking on a creation process whose parameters are defined by their own needs. Danse-Cité gives the performer all of the latitude to exercise his or her craft, from the genesis of a work to its transmission.
