Maryse Damecour completed a diploma at École de danse de Québec (Quebec City) in 2009 after a degree in sociology from Laval University. Since 2008 she has been a fixture in contemporary dance and theatre as a choreographer, dancer, and performer. Her background in science and philosophy is fertile soil where her work’s socio-political interrogations take root.
Maryse’s work across disciplines is part of an ongoing inquiry into the rich multiplicity of human condition and identity. She challenges notions of unified, definable identity by showing the multiple personalities that dwell in a single body just as multiple meanings inhabit a single movement. Working by accretion, her dance oscillates between movement and memory, questioning the solidity of the very ground we walk on.
