In March 2018, the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault met up with dancer, actor and stage director Marc Béland, and stage director, author, choreographer and dancer Alix Dufresne. Lise Gagnon invited them to reflect on Dancers, a co-creation by Catalan artist Sonia Gómez and Marc Béland in Quebec, with the dramaturgical assistance of Alix Dufresne. (in French)
In 2014, Sonia Gómez created the intimate and minimalist solo piece Bailarina. She then came up with the idea for Dancers, in which she teaches Bailarina to different performers who represent the contemporary dance trends that inspired her. Marc Béland and Alix Dufresne generously participated in the creation of Dancers, a work that stages the process of transmitting a dance piece—from the perspectives of both the choreographer and dancers—in a humorous and inventive way.
