January 21 – 25, 2019 | 9 : 30 pm – 12 : 30 pm

This workshop is designed to stimulate the senses and the cognitive experience of performers/dancers by engaging into experimentation and daily discussions on the performer’s practice and the subject of interpretation. The participants will go through varied experiences allowing them to concentrate on sensations, presence and observation while staying connected to the others and the context in which they are. Experimenting sometimes in obscurity or in odd spaces, they will also attempt to modulate and propose nuance to their “presence” while investigating the body, the relationship to space and to the observer.

Since 1971, Montreal based dance artist Ginelle Chagnon, has been working at deepening the dance medium. She first started as a dancer/performer and eventually came to teach and coach contemporary dance. For many years she was associated to choreographers Jean-Pierre Perreault and Paul-André Fortier but her sensitive gaze also brought her to collaborate with many other Canadian choreographers in their creative and performance processes. Since the ‘90s she has taken an active interest in documenting, conserving and promoting the contemporary dance repertoire. She gives various workshops that stimulate perception as well as the relationship of the body to a creative context… for everyone.
