Founded in Quebec City in 2005 under the artistic direction of choreographer Karine Ledoyen, Danse K par K is a company dedicated to the research and creation of contemporary dance. Leader, the company innovates and offers sensitive, poetic and adaptable projects and concepts to various possibilities of international programming.
Danse K par K articulates its projects by highlighting the artistic vision of choreographer Karine Ledoyen, while offering a privileged place to dancers who participate in the creation process. The works of Danse K par K are crossed by a particular attention to establish a fair balance between the recognition of common references of the general public and in counterpoint of the unexpected wanting to create in the spectator an active and reflective engagement with the questions that the work leads into the public space.
In her artistic approach, Karine Ledoyen is interested in revealing the “human fragility” that inhabits the body and explores the different scenic strategies to stage it. In particular, Karine uses the integration of digital scenic devices, which are an integral part of the creation, and which contribute more than a simple basic aesthetic effect.
Interdisciplinarity is also of great importance in the work of Danse K par K. The richness that results from the friction of different points of view brings a variety of artistic approaches. Danse K par K offers the public a sensitive and innovative diversity of opportunities and encounters that call for a redefinition of the dance experience.
