Lynda Gaudreau

Lynda Gaudreau's work unfolds through series resulting from creation, research and curating activities. Her artistic practice is grounded in choreography and in a reflection on dance, while engaging a thorough dialogue with architecture, visual arts, cinema and performance. As an artist and a curator, Gaudreau has for instance presented OUT OF GRACE at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery (2010), a group exhibition bringing together Alexandre David, Jérôme Fortin, Aude Moreau, Yann Pocreau, and Chih-Chien Wang, while inviting them to approach the exhibition space as a choreographical system. Among her usual collaborators are the dancer Karina Iraola, the composer Alexandre St-Onge, the filmmaker Marlene Millar, as well as the architect Annie Lebel. Her most recent series, entitled Out, focusses on what escapes any system: "misfits", margins and aesthetical, political and social excentricity. 


Lynda Gaudreau has collaborated with numerous contemporary performance venues in Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Danemark, Germany, Spain, France, Israel, Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland and the UK. Most notably, she has been connected with the Flemish dance scene and was associated with the Klapstuk Festival in the 1990s, while collaborating with the Théâtre de la Ville (Paris), which coproduced and circulated her work for almost seven years, the Venice Biennale, the Festival d'Avignon, the Kunstenfestivaldesarts, the Festival international de nouvelle danse, P.A.R.T.S. school and the ImPulsTanz festival.
