DANSE CARPE DIEM / EMMANUEL JOUTHE

emmanueljouthe.com

Territory: World

Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe is a nonprofit organization founded in 1995. In its first four years, six members serving as choreographers or performers jointly assumed the company’s artistic direction. In 1999, Emmanuel Jouthe became sole artistic director.

 

Beyond creating, producing and performing choreographic works, DCD/EJ contributes significantly to developing audiences in contemporary dance, with a strong focus on educational and cultural mediation activities.

 

DCD/EJ’s mission is to foster exploration and experimentation within an ongoing research process. In this way, the company contributes to the growth and development of the contemporary dance milieu.

 

Since 2004, Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe has been a member of Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique. As a corporate member, it benefits from the use of space for creation and experimentation at a preferred rate. This covers the use of office space and facilities and various other shared resources.

 

The company has premiered and performed over fifteen original works, several of which have been presented throughout Canada and in Europe. 

 

Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe receives financial support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Conseil des arts de Montréal.

 
SUITES PERMÉABLES

SUITES PERMÉABLES is intended as a basis for questioning intimacy at the limits of its physical expression. In every culture, a certain physical distance is unconsciously established between two people. The interaction is delimited by an invisible boundary, by a personal space that enables us to enter in contact with the world, to breathe it in, exude it, and above all, to sense it.

Set in an atypical performance space, this choreographic piece is deeply engaged in bringing audience members outside of their comfort zone, shaking up their expectations and coaxing them into an unexpected encounter with the other, in a hidden dimension.

Often at skin level, SUITES PERMÉABLES is intended to be perceived in much the same way as one gives a look, reaches out a hand, or whispers in someone’s ear. The performers’ bodies in this piece are extremely malleable, in turn vibrating and withdrawing from the outside world; their presence is both gentle and unsettling.

ÉCOUTE POUR VOIR

ÉCOUTE POUR VOIR is made up of various solos dispersed throughout the space and danced simultaneously. Dancers and spectators wear headphones connected to an iPod and share in a choreography for the duration of a piece of music. Participants can experience different versions and a variety of dances by moving from one performer to another, but they can also enjoy the totality of a shifting and dynamic ensemble from a distance. Participants are thus free to come into the dance according to their impulses or as they please.

CORPS DE TEXTE

CORPS DE TEXTE is a series of solos unfolding in a world where literature and poetry occupy the foreground. The concept is an outgrowth of the ÉCOUTE POUR VOIR project, and gives movement to words, excerpts from novels, poems and other literary works, in the space of 3 to 4-minute solos. Again, emanating from the theme of proximity in which the choreographer is deeply invested, the dancers’ bodies take on the shape of the text within intimate individual encounters, or tête-à-têtes. While hearing the power in the meaning of the words, the physical language expressed becomes a meeting and sharing medium, both delicate and invigorating. Using several languages in the recording of texts (Arabic, Spanish, English, French, Japanese, etc.), the piece reinitializes the spectator’s imagination, both provoking and facilitating openness to the other.
