Bio:


  • ISEA1995

    Marie Chouinard perceives choreography as a sacred art and an artist as a “medicine man”. Since her first creation in 1979 in Montreal, her tours have brought her to the great festivals of Europe, Asia and North America. Armed with curiosity and eclecticism, she has explored the ways of the body while living in Berlin, Bali and Nepal. Her work which was performance, event or installation (some 30 creations) has now become pure body action calling for gestures and sounds. She was awarded the Prix Jacqueline-Lemieux in 1986 and the Chalmers Award in 1987 and founded the Compagnie Marie Chouinard in 1990.
