Révélations (2014)

In this solo choreographed for Inés Boza in Barcelona and now for Annik Hamel in Montréal, Marie Béland questions the search for “authenticity” on the stage. Through the process of creating the solo, she reveals the rituals that may or may not lead to this “state of grace”. Béland aims to dissect representation by staging the work of the dancer that is typically obscured.

Sophie Michaud
Sophie Michaud / dramaturge et répétitrice

SOPHIE MICHAUD began her dance career in the early 1980s. After exploring dance through the means of interpretation and choreography, she made her own the profession of «repeater». By juxtaposing graduate studies (UQAM) and praxis, she deepened her reflection on the role she plays alongside choreographers and dancers. For more than 20 years now, she has worked as an artistic advisor, choreography assistant, rehearsal director and mentor. His main engagements include long collaborations with the companies Cas Public, Manon fait de la danse, Sinha Danse, Corpuscule Danse and Bouge de là. In addition, he collaborated with Lucie Grégoire Danse, Fabrication Danse, maribé – sors de ce corps, Caroline-Laurin Beaucage and Catherine Gaudet, to name a few. At UQAM, she has assisted several teachers and has accompanied many students in their creative process to the baccalaureate, the master’s in dance and the doctorate in artistic practice. Since 2008, the Regroupement Québécois de la Danse has entrusted him and David Pressault with the training program for emerging choreographers. This involvement is one of the actions she favours to renew her practice and contribute to the evolution of the discipline.
