BoucharDanse was conceived in 2009 by choreographer / performer Sylvie Bouchard, who is originally from Montréal. The company is an incubator of new artistic concepts and projects developed through dynamic collaborations, an intrinsic value of the company. BoucharDanse is devoted to artistic research, creation and presentation and is committed to fostering innovative concepts and projects that intersect with a diversity of art forms.
Guided by a desire to make dance inviting to both experienced and novice audiences, our programming offers unique kinesthetic experiences both in theatre venues and in non-traditional spaces. Company repertoire includes in-theatre performances, site-specific performances, multi-art installations and smaller scale works (solos and duets) for which Sylvie acts as an interpreter or a choreographer, sometimes both.
The choreographic works of Sylvie Bouchard endeavor to address issues and struggles surrounding mental health and journeys through trauma. This reflects her deep commitment and desire to speak about mental health, to unpack stories of resilience, and through dance, to engage the public in this conversation.
