Throughout the month of April, the Canadian Cultural Centre invites you to discover the creative power of women artists in Canada, through a selection of virtual encounters, online screenings and playlists.
On April 29 at 8pm, join us for a live conversation with Karine Ledoyen, choreographer and artistic director of the company “Danse K par K”, and Michelle Agnès Magalhaes, composer. The conversation will be broadcast live on our Facebook page, our Youtube channel and our Twitter account on April 29 at 8 pm.
The two creators met during a workshop led by Karine Ledoyen in Paris, on games as a creative tool. Karine Ledoyen’s approach to games gave rise to a form of open writing of choreography, which echoed Michelle Agnès Magalhaes’ research on the play of movements in musical writing. Since this meeting, Karine Ledoyen and Michelle Agnès Magalhaes have continued to exchange and deepen their reflections on their mutual research.
Karine Ledoyen, choreographer and artistic director, founded Danse K par K in 2005 in Quebec City, dedicated to the research and creation of contemporary dance. Karine has been travelling back and forth between France and Canada for the past 20 years through workshops, performances and other artistic encounters.
Michelle Agnès Magalhaes is a composer and her music explores the limits between gesture and writing. Michelle was born in Brazil and now lives in Paris where she collaborates with Ircam for her research (Interaction Son Musique Mouvement team) and participates in numerous contemporary music ensembles (L’Itinéraire, Ensemble Intercontemporain, Talea, 2e2m, Abstraï, Soundinitiative, Choeur en Scène, Lovemusic, etc).
