Shifting Bodies • Tools for acrobatic and partnering research
This workshop will focus on dance-acrobatic and partner work.
We will study and practice technical tools to develop physical ability working with the floor and with partners. Through different games and tasks, we will work with concepts like balancing, counter balancing, weight giving, taking and shifting, etc.
In parallel to that, we will experiment and research different situations dealing with improvisation systems, mouvement qualities, relationships, playfulness, power and letting go.
This workshop will lead you to find your own way to practice and create solo and partner acrobatic, hand to hand and dance work.

Emile Pineault (CAN) discovered the circus at the age of 4 at the Quebec circus school, where he began his professional training. Few years later, he joined the National Circus School in Montreal and completed his studies in 2014. In addition to his acrobatic training, Emile participated to many dance courses, including Ultima Vez, Samuel Lefeuvre, Peter Jasko, Peter Ampe, and Manuel Roque.
In 2012, with four of his friends and the director Johanne Madore, he created the show "Croisé", which was presented at La Tohu, at the Montréal Complètement Cirque festival, and also in France. From 2014 to 2017, Emile joined the Montreal company "The 7 fingers", on the show Cuisine & Confessions, with whom he toured internationally.
Now based between Montreal and Brussels, he works on his own creative and experimental projects, wishing to erase the codes and boundaries between artistic disciplines. He will be soonely premiering his first solo show. In addition, he occasionally takes the role of interpreter in dance, theater, and circus productions.
