Fleuve | Espace Dance, QC
“Inspired by the beauty of my environment, of its natural and living elements, and by everything that surrounds me daily, I chose to recapture the playgrounds of my childhood in order to share and pay tribute to this infinite universe. Water, white geese, the St. Lawrence River and its shore are powerful sources of inspiration, from which I draw the energy, the strength and the courage humbly embodied in my artistic approach. I live, I love, I dance, under open skies.” Chantal Caron, Choreographer
