Teachers for the 2020 Summer School

  • Georges-Nicolas Tremblay

    Georges-Nicolas Tremblay | EDCM

    Coming from a background in visual arts, theatre and dance, Georges-Nicolas is an artist  who continually reevaluates the performance practice, and brings his insistant curiosity and interrogation to every project he works on, ranging from musicals to experimental live art performance. This is what brought him to pursue a master’s degree at the Université de Québec à Montréal, researching dramaturgy in dance, which he sees as a complex system of relational power that is created through each performer’s artistic voice and actions.
