Montreal, Quebec , Canada

Pierre’s passion for dance and human movement probably started in his parent’s loving dance while still an embryo!
a practitionner of Martial arts from a young age (Judo, then Karaté then Ch’ien Lung KungFu) Pierre moved as fluidly on land as in water his first realm of exploration of the “expansion” of his sense of connexion with nature and consciousness. Explorations into team and “contact” sports like hockey, american football, volleyBall and shortly Rugby awakened his desire for creative connectedness to himself, his teammates and the “field of play”. A canadian Trampoline champion, he soon became driven by a constant urge to defy gravity and to find new ways of moving and dancing through life. A short stint as a Naval officer tought him to further dare thinking of the box and to value clear communications and the rewards of patience and perseverance. It’s then in the early 80’s While was studying BioMechanics and Massage therapy that he discovered Contact improvisation.

THe exploration has never stopped since … dancing on stage, in public performances, in hospital settings to rehabilitate the desire of dancing and moving that is innate to all living beings… Choreographing, scoring and/or orchestrating various dance events and rituals…
Pierre has taken Contact Improvisation to kindergardens, schools, colleges, inside the work place to explore it’s potential as an ongoing , enriching dialogue with one self or amongst humans and their environment. Pierre has taught CI in private or group lessons, has been a movement facilitator with professional dancers and athletes as well as many people simply desiring to have more dance in their lives…. and more life in their dance…
