Creation laboratory - Repertoire and exploration

I invite you to discover an excerpt from my repertoire while sharing a rigorous learning space in an environment of trust. To prepare the body, I will offer exercises and key principles that I use in my creative process, such as presence and breathing. We will approach the ground with authority, sculpt the space with ingenuity and explore opportunities to work with partners. My work process is structured while leaving room for instinct and listening in the present moment. I am enthusiastic about research and improvisation while remaining grounded in the skills and precision of the body.

Inhabited by an insatiable curiosity, I marvel at the bravery and persistence of the dancer. Through the body and exchange, let us cultivate the spirit of hope together.

Anne Plamondon 

Anne Plamondon's dance is described as captivating, fluid, graceful and radiant. She made her choreographic debut with the solo The Same Eyes As You (2012), created in collaboration with director Marie Brassard. Since the founding of her company, Anne Plamondon Productions, her works have been presented at the National Arts Center in Ottawa, Jacob’s Pillow, the Guggenheim Museum, Live Arts in New York as well as broadcast on the CBC Arts and Télé-Québec networks. More recently, she choreographed for Alberta Ballet, BJM (Ballets Jazz de Montréal) and Arts Umbrella. Between 2006 and 2015, Anne danced with award-winning choreographer Crystal Pite and her company Kidd Pivot in four creations, including the duo A Picture of You Falling, winner of an Olivier award in 2015. She joined Victor Quijada in 2002 and quickly became the emblem of Rubberbandance, of which she was co-artistic director from 2006 to 2015. She participated in more than ten creations and played a major role in the development of the Rubberband method. Between 1994 and 2000, she danced with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, Nederlands Dans Theater, Gulbenkian Ballet and performed roles by choreographers Jiří Kylián, Hans Van Manen, Johan Inger, Ohad Naharin, Paul Lightfoot and Sol Leon. As a freelancer, she has worked with Marie Chouinard, James Kudelka, Serge Denoncourt, Marcos Morau, and Ina Christel Johannessen, and has collaborated with the contemporary circus company, Les 7 Doigts de la Main. Anne has appeared in several short films, most recently in Solitude Partagée, which was a semi-finalist at the Paris Play Film Festival in 2020. Her recent creation, Myokine, was presented by Danse Danse in November 2023 while the short film inspired by The Same Eyes As You will be released soon. Anne received the honour of being Margie Gillis' protégé in the PGGAS (Governor General's Performing Arts Awards) mentoring program in 2023.
