Danièle Desnoyers took part in the 13th edition of On Marche, an international dance festival in Marrakesh.
She was part of the Quebec delegation present at the event with goal of developing cultural and artistic exchanges between Montreal and Marrakesh in training, teaching and choreography practices, as well as distribution.
Under the direction of its founder, Taoufiq Izzediou, the On Marche international contemporary dance festival, which has been hosting Moroccan and international artists since its creation in 2003, was held from March 18 to 24, 2018.
Le Carré des Lombes will perform excerpts from a new creation in studio on May 30 and June 2, 2018 at Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique.
Part performance lecture, part open rehearsal, Danièle Desnoyers shares a new phase in a current creative process with her guests. In a few words and a few moments of dance, six performers and a few collaborators share with you the most compelling elements of this artistic project.

For the eight consecutive year, Le Carré des Lombes launches its Choreographic Minutes fundraising campaign to finance the company’s creations. You can make your contribution to the creation of a choreographic work in an original way by offering us Choreographic Minutes.
Each creation is the result of nearly 40,000 minutes of work by more than a dozen artists. Each Choreographic Minute you contribute gives us more time to create, research, rehearse, design sets and costumes, plan and improve.
Your support allows Le Carré des Lombes to pursue its artistic mission, as well as its mission of showcasing Quebec culture throughout the world.
Your donation will also be matched by Quebec’s Ministry of Culture and Communications, so please know that each dollar donated will go even further.

Thank for your contribution !
The choreographer is currently spending two weeks at one of the nine Leighton Artists Studios at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.
She will reach an important milestone in her research project “Ce que la danse ne dit pas” [What dance doesn’t say], which is supported by the Département de danse de l'UQAM and the Fonds de recherche Société et culture du Québec and seeks to document the creative process of her new choreography project.
The 2018 year begins with a series of research laboratories focusing on a new creation.
For three weeks, the artists will occupy a space that will be reconfigured with the collaboration of set designer Geneviève Lizotte. Composer Ben Shemie will continue the musical experimentation project that he started in collaboration with our choreographer a few months ago. Six performers, Myriam Arsenault, Paige Culley, Jean-Benoît Labrecque, Louis-Elyan Martin, Nicolas Patry and Brontë Poiré-Prest, will accompany the choreographer during this new creation.

Danièle Desnoyers awarded a grant from the Fonds de recherche Société et culture du Québec
In 2017 Danièle Desnoyers is launching an important research project on the documentation of the research process of her next choreographic project for Le Carré des Lombes.
Funded for three consecutive years by the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et culture, and supported by the Dance Department of UQAM, where the choreographer teaches, the project aims to develop the most effective tools for documenting a work-in-progress, from various perspectives. The project also aims to develop new platforms to reproduce the constitutive elements of works in the performing arts, and to design new and dynamic forms of public sharing.
