I am interested in creating transformative experiences. Working with combining dance and theatre, I want to push the boundaries and make both performers and audience members have new sensations. I am intrigued with fleshing out one’s unique way of moving and exploring the weirdness and humour that comes from individuality. I am fascinated with both the light and dark sides of someone and would like to create work that is both imaginative and daring.
BAROUF - Morgane Le Tiec (Montréal, Canada) - 30 min.
|After the success of her trio Sous ma peau, Coup de Coeur du Public prize at the 13th FQD, Morgane Le Tiec returns this year with Barouf, a work that seeks inspiration from the myth of Babel and communication-related questions in this era of technology. Using humour, energy and fragility, Barouf confuses us and creates a joyful disturbance.|

Biography of the choreographer
Morgane Le Tiec, who was born in France, studied at the Opéra de Paris Dance School then at Paris’ Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse. In December 2008, she joined La la la Human steps, then worked with Montalvo/Hervieu in 2009; Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal from 2011 to 2015, then Compagnie Marie Chouinard since December 2015. In parallel, she works on her own choreography and creates the trio Sous ma peau, presented at Quartiers Danses Festival in September 2015.
My work and my vision: My choreographic work is based on expressionist and theatrical dance. Everything stems from an emotion or a situation that I try to convey through movement. Movement then becomes a means of expressing human emotions. Rhythm and energy are essential to my approach and their use may convey an utterly different message with the same movement. I rely on emotional interpretation and improvisation within a very structured and assembled movement. Theatrical parts support or put into perspective an idea that is developed by the movement. I try to reach the daily life, states of mind and body of human beings as much as possible.
