Louise Bédard

Louise Bédard is a Quebec choreographer and performer with a passion for movement and space. She integrates multiple dimensions into her works, where we are in a perpetual state of suspension and mooring. The influence of visual arts is very present in her approach, and gives rise to singular works. Present on screen as a performer since 2012, she co-directs in 2021 her first film Démesure shot at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.
