Company members Carol Prieur and Lucie Mongrain introduce elements of Chouinard's work in this unique workshop for intermediate-advanced and professional dancers and choreographers. The workshop emphasizes Chouinard's concept of the course of energy through the body, its manifestation in movement, and capacity to communicate with viewers. Employing the voice, breath, undulations of the spinal column, facial expressions, as well as physicality, workshop participants learn to awaken an innate intelligence to explore new realms of creativity and versatility as artists.
