The Choreographers is a group of 4 Montreal dance artists, Katie Ward, Thea Patterson, Peter Trosztmer and Audree Juteau who have banded together as part of an evil plan to take over the world! (or maybe just survive!) Between them they have worked with many Montreal choreographers and companies including: Marie Chouinard, Deborah Dunn, Montréal Danse, 4Dart, David Pressault (to name only a few). The Choreographers have presented their first piece Man and Mouse in Halifax, Montreal, at the Joyce Soho in New York, in Lennoxville, and at selected Maison de la Culture in Montreal.They are also active as creators and collaborators in their own work, and in other unique projects that inspire them- presenting dance is spaces ranging from small bars, to abandoned theatres, and larger stages across the country and internationally. www.thechoreographers.ca
Performer, teacher and choreographer, Caroline Laurin-Beaucage was trained at the School of Toronto Dance Theatre. Since 10 years, she has been active in the dance community in Montreal. She danced for Grand Poney (Jacques Poulin-Denis), Trial& Eros, Bouge de là company, Fortier Danse Creation, FondationJean-Pierre Perrault, Louise Bédard and Sursaut dance company. Hit and Fall, her latest creation is a collaboration with performance artist Martin Messier and was presented in various venues and festivals such as Escales Improbables de Montréal, Studio 303, the OFFTA and the FTA.
Composer, performer and video artist Martin Messier mixes his creative work between image and sound. He displays his talents in many directions. In addition to his collaborations with both choreographers and performers Caroline Laurin-Beaucage and Anne Thériault, he creates audio performance (The watchmaker, with old clocks ; Pencil Project, with pencils) and designed sound installations (Sewing Machine Orchestra, with eight sewing machines dating from 1930-1940). As a videographer, he has directed short movies, including a diptych titled Autoportrait. Also a composer for theater and dance, he has worked in sound processing and music composition in the piece Onde de choc from Ginette Laurin (FTA 2010). www.mmessier.com
