Founded by artistic director Sylvie Bouchard in 2009, BoucharDanse is a company that combines the poetry of contemporary dance and the narrative element of theatre, together in one stroke. Trained in contemporary dance and with a strong background in character-driven work, Bouchard creates projects that speak passionately and poetically by layering stories and evocative imagery.
BoucharDanse serves as an umbrella for the artistic director’s creative endeavors and commitment to innovative dance presentations. The company aims to increase audiences for dance and be in close contact with them. Its repertoire includes pieces for both indoor and outdoor venues.
BoucharDanse presents works that are created and co-created by Bouchard and also commissions an array of talented Canadian choreographers to create new works for the company. Works co-created during her years at CORPUS are available to presenters through BoucharDanse. The company is dedicated to projects and collaborations that bring together Francophone and Anglophone artists.
