How to reflect, formulate and write a project's artistic approach? To articulate is at once to organize and structure your thoughts, to share them, to utter them. To (dis)articulate is to allow yourself to do so so in an inventive way, so that the process of putting something into words reflects the singularity of your visions and practices. This workshop offers circus artists and designers a space to discuss, reflect on and write their artistic approaches or artisit statements. Each participant is invited to explore the artistic process of a past, current or future creative project.
This training is intended for circus artists and designers and is offered partly online on Zoom and partly in person.
As a performer and performance maker, Andréane Leclerc is interested in human encounters that lead to interdisciplinary and interartistic processes. In an approach that deconstructs the spectacular, she seeks a material body devoid of form that evolves through sensation rather than sensationalism. She draws inspiration from 20 years of circus practice to reflect on contortion as a philosophy and not as a skill. In 2013, she obtained a master's degree from the theatre department of the Université du Québec à Montréal, dealing with the dramaturgy of the body. That same year, she founded, with her partner Geoffroy Faribault, the company Nadère arts vivants in order to pursue her practice of research on the body by creating conceptual stage works presented here and abroad.
Myriam Stéphanie Perraton Lambert is a dramaturg who holds a master's degree in theatre from the Université du Québec à Montréal. Her current research focuses on female choreographic, textual and visual writing, as well as ecosophy and artistic training. She is a member of the research collective PRint (Pratiques Interartistiques et Scènes contemporaines) and GRIAV (Groupe de recherche interdisciplinaire en arts vivants). Parallel to her practice and research, she teaches dramaturgy at the Collège Lionel-Groulx and the Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe drama schools, is an associate dramaturge at the CEAD (Centre des auteurs.ice.s dramatiques), and collaborates in the development of Larsens à LA SERRE - arts vivants. She was a member of the editorial committee of the magazine JEU et d'aparté | arts vivants.
