Sarah Bronsard

Sarah Bronsard is a Tiohtià:ke/Montreal-based choreographer. She finds her most fertile terrain in flamenco and in the contemporary dance scene after a multidisciplinary artistic background in music, glass blowing, digital arts and a painting career. Her projects, supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec (CALQ), have been presented in Quebec (Tangente, Société des Arts Technologiques), in Europe (France, Wales, Italy, Holland), in Africa (Morocco) and in Asia (Japan). Her work has been awarded "Best Original Creation" from the Cirque du Soleil (Fringe, 2012), the Pierre Lapointe award (UQAM, 2016 and 2017) as well as the David-Kilburn award (UQAM, 2020). In 2020, she worked at TOKAS (Tokyo Arts and Space in Japan), with support from CALQ, to begin work on Bruissement de mousses, a project that looks more closely at the perception of moss (bryophytes) in both Japanese esthetics and spirituality. In 2021, she toured Quebec with her piece Èbe and this piece has been chosen to represent Québec by the CALQ at the opening of the Festival International d'Art Vidéo in Casablanca. She is currently working on the piece L'écho des racines, a choreographic work founded in the meeting of Flamenco and Quebecois step dancing with a dozen of musicians and dancers, as well as Les Rigoles, a co-creation with singer Alexandra Templier on the phenomenon of laughter, which will both premiere in the spring of 2024. In addition to her choreographic practice, she has danced for Aurélie Pedron, Audrey Gaussiran and [ZØGMA]. In 2020 she completed a master’s thesis in research-creation at the UQAM dance department on the intercorporeality between dance and music.
