maribé – sors de ce corps/Marie Béland
Artistic Director: Marie Béland
Member since: 2009

Graduated from Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), Marie Béland founded her company, maribé – sors de ce corps , in 2005. Her creations have won several awards and were presented to Montreal (Tangente, Agora dance, houses of culture, FTA), Quebec and Europe. Figures silence (2013), BLUE – GREEN – RED (2013) Revelations (2014) and BETWEEN (2015) are the most recent of the ten pieces created by the choreographer. Marie Béland has created a series of shows where indiscipline reigns with precision and verve. . Her movement vocabulary draws together physical energy, absurd humour, pop culture, and audience involvement, in a juxtaposition of the senses that is as surprising as it is joyful. Through the entirety of her work, Marie Béland asks questions about dance, performance in general, and dance presentations, showing us their inner workings and sometimes their flaws. Alongside his work on stage, Marie Béland is interested in in situ dance, multidisciplinary work and teaching. She is a founding member of the creative laboratory La 2e Porte à Gauche.
