Delphine

Delphine Parée, Montreal (only in French)

Enseignante et artiste associée à différents projets de danse dans le domaine de l’éducation, Delphine interroge la richesse du potentiel humain par le mouvement dansé. La dimension sociale est fondatrice de son travail et s’exprime par une approche collaborative dans différents contextes sociaux-économiques. Elle a ainsi créé des ateliers invitant tous les publics à des rencontres inédites par le mouvement dansé sous des formes festives et singulières dans des lieux culturels et d’éducation.

Les projets ont été portés par sa propre structure culturelle, A Marée Danse, montée en France. Depuis 2012, à Montréal, en parallèle à ses activités d’enseignement, elle se forme au Département de danse de l’UQAM en suivant des cours qui approfondissent une approche globale du corps et enrichissent son travail de pédagogue-artiste engagée.

Delphine collabore avec MUZA depuis l’automne 2019. Elle co-signe notamment le projet Espace Qilib’ et participe au Caméléon: Programs.
