Since graduating from EDCM in 2015, Stefania Skoryna has performed for Mélanie Demers (OFFTA 2016), PETRUS/Jérémie Niel (Théâtre de Quat’sous 2019), and Martin Messier (FTA 2019). Her enthusiasm and initiative brought her to choreograph for events at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Chalet du Mont-Royal, the exhibition Butterflies Go Free at the Botanical Garden (As They Strike Collective), and to co-produce, choreograph, and perform at Monument-National as part of Zoofest (2015-2018). Stefania participated in several collaborative projects, including Souvenirs de mariage (Action Theatre with Marie-Chantale Béland, Québec City), Contemporary Christmas (collective Flamant) and Les Galanteries Sauvages (Ensemble Volte & Raphaëlle Renucci). Her piece Ellipses will be presented at Tangente’s Danses Buissonnières 2019. Her involvement in the community plays a key role in her practice. She has been teaching for ten years, offers mentoring for the first-year students at EDCM, is a guest lecturer for the graduates, and co-founder of the non-profit Nous Sommes L’Été, which has been organizing summer dance laboratories since 2014 in Montréal and Québec City.
