For 15 years, Fleuve | Espace danse has been able to develop a choreographic specificity in site-specific contemporary dance, positioning itself as a leader in this niche.

 

In 2018, Chantal Caron, Artistic Director of the company, was named Member of the Order of Canada  for her artistic creations highlighting the natural heritage and her contribution to the development of the next generation of dancers. Chantal Caron's commitment to the environment and the community of her region, coupled with her ability to promote and defend natural heritage, is perfectly integrated into her artistic signature. Her work, raising awareness of the issues and beauty of nature has also earned her the title of St. Lawrence River Ambassador for the David Suzuki Foundation.

 
LA MARÉE NOIRE
In situ
SHOW

Inspired by the issues caused by an oil spill in the seas and on marine ecosystems, Chantal Caron revisits textures, forms and oppositions in this 30-minute show. The performance puts in symbiosis two marine goddesses captives of the Grande Marée Noire.

 

"A duo of dancers appears as part of nature: curious earthly doubles in original aqua-medusas. Undulatory movements, hands-fin waving, pulses and contractions of the bodies, sound breaths act like the inspiration of a breath or a wave.  Participants are welcomed as a collective tribute to the surrounding nature in the expression of energetic movements.

LE SOUFFLE DE L'AUBE

In situ

SHOW

Le Souffle de l’aube (The Breath of Dawn) is an invitation to experience the daily rebirth of the sun at dawn. Guided by Chantal Caron, participants embody a collective tribute to the natural world that surrounds them, awakening and opening their minds to performances inspired by natural elements like rocks, wind, tides and birds.

 

The spectators will be led to three locations where the performers await them to greet the dawn. Through this experience, spectators are encouraged to reconnect their connection to nature, movement, and contemplation.
