Châteauvert received the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) work of the year award for the Eastern Townships in 2014 for this work for seven dancers. It has since toured to young audiences in Canada and Mexico.

In China, the company will travel from the north to the south, visiting the cities of Tianjin, Harbin, Wuhan, Huanggang, Chongqing, Dongguan, Nanjing, Hohhot, Taiyuan, Beijing, Weifang, Jinan, as well as Dalian.

Sursaut Dance Company has been making accessible contemporary dance work for young and family audiences since 1985.
