Catherine Dumais is a Quebec and Montreal artist who has settled in the Gaspé since 2021. She has a sporting background, studies in visual and media arts, and a degree in contemporary dance interpretation (UQAM, 2018). After her studies, she explored circus and street arts: on one side she trained in contortion with Annick Taillon, Jinny Jessica Jacinto, Amy Goh and Andréane Leclerc, and on the other she explored dance and movement through her Flow Art practice, an artistic discipline that involves the manipulation and rotation of various lighting or burning accessories (poets, staff, ropedart, hoola hoop, etc.). Since her arrival in the Gaspé Peninsula, it is the territory that, because of its vastness, has won in sensitive and unexplored places of reflection and performance.
