Founded in 2020, FreeBodiZ is an emerging collective from Montreal. It was created by four performing friends with the same desire to share their common passion. FreeBodiZ creations stand out as both poetic and socially minded. Rooted in hip-hop culture and contemporary arts, they are defined by the diversity of their styles. Wanting to make “underground” dancing more visible and accessible, FreeBodiZ is involved in community projects.
Every member of the group takes on the title of choreographer in turns. This creating method gives every dancer the time to explore their own artistic ideas. Everyone is free to create using their own dancing style, whether it is Breakdancing, Popping, Contemporary, Dance partnering, Acrobatics, etc. The piece’s movements are raw and very physical, attempting to portray the authenticity, vulnerability, and strength of every dancer.
