  Workshop 2017: registration is now open!
New this year: COMPAGNIE MARIE CHOUINARD's repertoire workshop will be held over a weekend in the autumn, on October 14 and 15, 2017 at Espace Marie Chouinard. After the presentation of Le Cri du monde on September 26 and 27 at Danse Danse (Place des Arts, Montreal), the COMPAGNIE will be offering a workshop based on this work, which represents an exhilarating technical challenge. Another new addition: optional early morning classes, given by Linda Rabin each morning before the beginning of the course. Professional dancers, register now! For full details, visit our website.



  The COMPAGNIE performs at major international festivals
After the International Contemporary Dance Festival of the Venice Biennale and the Montpellier Danse Festival, the COMPAGNIE will travel to several leading festivals on both sides of the Atlantic, including the Ravello Festival in Italy and the Canada Dance Festival & Canada Scene in Ottawa. For the first time, the COMPAGNIE will attend the historic Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival (Becket, Massachusetts), presenting 24 Preludes by Chopin with live pianist Jean-François Latour, in a double bill with HENRI MICHAUX : MOUVEMENTS, then moves on to San Luis Potosi in Mexico for the Internacional Festival of Danza Contemporanea Lila Lopez in late July. For performance dates, please see the calendar on our site.



  IN MUSEUM V2: free outdoor performance
On June 26, passers-by in the streets of Venice were touched and captivated by the performance of IN MUSEUM V2 in one of the city’s public squares. This performance will travel to Ottawa as part of the Canada Dance Festival & Canada Scene. Come see dancers Valeria Galluccio and Carol Prieur on the esplanade in front of the National Gallery of Canada, and tell them a private wish. They will respond with a personalized reply in the form of a spontaneous dance that conjures the power to make the wish come true. An event not to be missed, Saturday, July 15 from 2 pm to 5 pm!
