Portraits dansés

A series of short films about the uniqueness of each dancer.

Like the painters who draw inspiration from their muse, choreographer Audrey Gaussiran choreographs on her performers to create intimate video dance works. It focuses on the passions of the dancers, their experience and their personality, which influence the choreography, the musical choice, the cinematographic focus as well as the environment in which the performance is filmed.

Creation of the Work

Benefitting from a grant from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) in collaboration with the city of Laval, Audrey Gaussiran created "Portraits dansés" in 2017. The choreographer explores the artistic identity of Laval and collaborates with valuable partners. Benoit Jones-Vallée handles the cinematography and editing, while Alex Cattaneo composes the musical scores. Filmed in significant locations throughout the city, three Laval dancers are showcased: Anne-Rose Cupidon, Mireille Gariépy, and Jean-Benoit Labrecque.

Selected by the Centrale des artistes for the Made in Laval collection in 2018, destined for the Libraries of Laval, this series of "Portraits dansés" also received a nomination for the CALQ Work of the Year in 2019.

The creation of this Work was made possible thanks to the financial support of our generous partners.
