Since the 1990s Danièle Desnoyers has taken her company, Le Carré des Lombes, on a unique trajectory, far from the beaten paths, across the landscape of international contemporary dance. Her repertoire, composed of some twenty works (Discordantia, Concerto grosso pour corps et surface métallique, Bataille, Duos pour corps et instruments, Play it Again!, Là où je vis, Dévorer le ciel, Paradoxe Mélodie, etc.), reflects an artistic vision in which dance, music, the visual arts and technologies are intertwined. The raw materials of sound, her dramaturgical matrix, give the choreographer a degree of abstraction that she applies directly to the language of the body. As her flagship work, Duos pour corps et instruments (2003), continues to tour internationally, she is working on a new choreographic project entitled Unfold/7 perspectives, the premiere of which is slated for the spring of 2019.
Danièle Desnoyers has also created a dozen commissioning works for Canadian and foreign companies. With Le Carré des Lombes, she has been welcomed in residence on numerous occasions, in Quebec and abroad, in addition to receiving the support of numerous co-producers.
