Sylvain Émard Danse

Description

A prolific and internationally respected artist, Sylvain Émard created his own dance company Sylvain Émard Danse in 1990, quickly establishing a reputation for a very original style. Highly theatrical at first, his work soon evolved into a more formal approach to dance. From his first solo piece “Ozone, Ozone” (1987) to his most recent work “Rhapsodie” (2022), he has been exploring the territory of human nature through the force and strength of the body. His repertoire now includes some thirty original pieces that have had a resounding impact all over the world. Renowned for his refined style and precise movement, his presentation in 2009 of “Le Grand Continental” at the Festival TransAmériques must have come to some as a surprise. Inspired by line dancing, this unique piece has featured some 3000 non-dancers in several performances across Canada, the United States, Mexico, South Korea, New Zealand, Chile, Germany and Austria, attracting some 125,000 spectators. September 2017, “Le Super Méga Continental” boasted 375 dancers in Montréal to celebrate the city’s 375th anniversary in a monumental fashion. Sylvain Émard’s unique style has led to invitations to work as guest choreographer in theatre, opera and cinema. These collaborations include his joining forces with Robert Lepage in 2005 to work on the opera “1984” by Lorin Maazel, presented namely at Covent Garden in London and at La Scala in Milan. Sylvain Émard has received numerous prestigious awards, such as the Jean A. Chalmers Choreographic Award (1996).
