Description

Since 2017, RD CREATIONS (RDC) produces and presents creative projects by artistic director and choreographer Rhodnie Désir. Simultaneously authentic and contemporary, the Montreal-based organization operates internationally using an innovative artistic approach that questions socio political trends, explores movement, defies the imagination, engages citizens, transmits knowledge while archiving the memory of its people. Rhodnie’s choreographic-documentary work is quite unique and unlike anything seen before. Each of its works aspires to be a voice for the voiceless and to engage directly with the communities from which it draws its inspiration. Whether through presentations, grassroots-level cultural mediation or choreographic works, RD Creations acts as a social archive, leaving a legacy of cultural wealth. It believes in the potential of combining multiple media in the same choreographic work, allowing it to evolve according to the social realities and cultures it encounters. Deeply rooted in ancestral cultures, RD Creations is committed to respecting cultures by fostering genuine collaborations and prioritizing listening, discussion and interaction. These collaborations take place in and across political, media, government, social and community spheres, leading to valuable partnerships for example with 45 partners, 130 specialists and 15 musicians for the BOW’T TRAIL project.​ The repertoire has a total of 21 works, including ten since 2017. In 2020, the company won Prix Envol from Prix de la danse de Montreal, following Rhodnie Désir who was awarded by the prestigious Grand Prix for the excellence of her work BOW’T TRAIL Retrospek and the breadth of BOW’T TRAIL international trail. In January 2021, Rhodnie Désir was chosen as one of the “25 to watch” by Dance Magazine in New York. In April 2021, she was also nominated by APAP for the prestigious career award The Award of Merit for Achievement in the Performing Art. In 2022, she received the “Danseuse de l’année” award at the Gala Dynastie she became the first Associate Artist of the famous Place des Arts institution in Montreal for a three-year pilot project.
