Description

Founded in 2016 by Nasim Lootij (choreographer/performer) and Kiasa Nazeran (dramaturge), two artists of Iranian origin, Vâtchik Danse is a contemporary dance collective based in Montreal. Rebelling against the bans imposed by the current Iranian regime on all forms of art, Nasim left Iran in 2006 to settle in France. In Paris, she studied dance at the Université Paris 8, the RIDC and the CNSMDP, collaborated with French choreographers and created Lalaï (2012) and Bouyé Jouyé Mouliân (2015). Due to the tightening political conditions in Iran, Kiasa was forced to give up his profession as an actor and dramaturge in Iran and move to France in 2009. In Paris, he deepened his theoretical and practical knowledge of theatre by attending the Jacques Lecoq school, the Académie Européenne du Théâtre Corporel, the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle and the Université Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, where he defended his doctoral thesis in October 2020. The two artists began their work together in Paris in 2010. Since 2016, they have been living and working in Montreal. Their sources of inspiration include the art and socio-political history of their home country (Iran), current political issues, and early 20th-century modern movements, such as German Expressionism. Their choreographic creations include Moi-Me-Man (2017), La Chute (2019), and L’Inconsistance (work in progress).
