Dancer, improviser and teacher, Marc Boivin began his career at Ottawa's Groupe de la Place Royale under the direction of Peter Boneham, and in 1985 joined Ginette Laurin and her young company O Vertigo Danse. Since 1991, he has worked as a freelance choreographer with a number of local and international choreographers, including Louise Bédard, Mélanie Demers, Sylvain Émard, Jean-Pierre Perreault, Tedd Robinson and Catherine Tardif. Affiliated with L'École de danse contemporaine de Montréal since 1987, he regularly teaches and choreographs in various schools and organizations across Canada.
The contemporary dance technique class is composed of Limón technique material and ballet principles. Dancers are called upon to develop a balance between strength and freedom, a release of ballistic weight in movement, clarity of impulse in proprioceptive space, and a relationship of intention to scenic space through form and gaze. In this work process, technique is defined as the preparation of the body for a dynamic and creative state, and the appropriation of tools to physically articulate the performer's artistic contribution according to his or her choices.
