Lucy Fandel


Lucy Fandel is choreographer, dancer and writer based in Montréal, who grew up between Beaulieu sur Mer, France, and Concord, Massachusetts. After her first year studying sociology at Concordia University, she decided to pursue dance professionally and joined the contemporary dance department as a double major in dance and honours sociology. She aspires to better understand the social world around her by combining the humanities, writing and dance: integrating sociological concepts and practices into her artistic research. Lucy has performed and presented work in festivals such as Montréal’s Nuit Blanche, Art Matters at Concordia and the Festival International du Film Ethnographique de Quebec (FIFEQ). She has also led a course on dance history at the McGill Community for Lifelong Learning.
