Choreographer & dancer
Véronique Giasson studied at the École supérieure de ballet du Québec and was part of the Jeune Ballet du Québec from 2005 to 2008. Her professional career is dotted with multiple and varied experiences, halfway between ballet and contemporary dance . She has danced for several Quebec and international companies including Cas Public, bjm_danse, Théâtre national de la Sarre (Germany), Compagnie Marie Chouinard, Compañia Tania Perez Salas (Mexico), Ezdanza, Sinha Danse, Andrea Peña & Artists, Cirque du Soleil and the Ballet Preljocaj (France).
Véronique is collaborating with filmmaker Étienne Cantin for the co-creation of their short dance film.
My choreographic style is somewhere between classical and contemporary aesthetics, and bears the influences of Quebec as well as Germany, France or Mexico. Refining the body in motion and highlighting it remain at the center of my creative priorities. My heightened sense of musicality and precision define me as a performer and as a choreographer, which is why I seek to push the limits of the body while seeking accuracy in form and in the complexity of rhythm.
