Having lived in Asia for nearly two years, traveled through Europe and North America on tour with the Cas Public company, and worked with Ballet BC in Vancouver after graduating from the École supérieure de ballet du Québec, Nicholas would still not say that he understands the world in which we live. It is a complex and diverse world. His work seeks to instruct with identifiable images while raising awareness of historical and sociocultural contexts, and ideally foster reflection on the part of the participant and observer.
I generate choreographic material with help from participating artists through imposed situations reimagining an existing space. Through real and recognizable gestures, I manipulate, deconstruct, and connect their shared and individual movements. I invite the artists to transpose in different parts of their bodies psychological themes such as self-denial, conformity, and apathy in order to create concurrent conflict in the body.
