About Manuel Roque
Aside from an exciting and diverse career as a performer for several dance companies such as Marie Chouinard, Dominique Porte, Peter James, Sylvain Émard Danse, Fortier Danse-Création, and Daniel Léveillé, Manuel Roque is also choreographer and created RAW-me (2010) and Ne meurs pas tout de suite, on nous regarde (2012) with Lucie Vigneault.
In 2013, he founded Cie Manuel Roque and presented Project In Situ at Montréal’s Place des Arts. Then Data has been presented at Usine C, and at FTA 2014 before an international tour.
During 2014-2015 season, Manuel is participating to Migrant Bodies, an international research project where he created Matière Noire (2015). He also choreographed Aurora for the Ecole de danse contemporaine de Montreal students (2015). The quartet 4-OR (2015) was presented by Tangente and Parcours Danse.
In 2015, he benefited from a two months creative residency at La Fabrik Potsdam. Thanks to the financial support from CALQ, he was also nominated Bearer of Hope , the same year, in the annual selection of the prestigious Tanz Magazine.
His latest solo, bang bang, is presented in Lyon, at FTA 2017 and in Paris at Festival June Event where he received the Best Choreography Price from Les Prix de la Danse de Montréal 2017.
His creative universe focuses on the contemporary languages breeding, on the meeting of a kinesthesic virtuosity and the research of an upstanding presence. Revolving around the notion of contemporary human condition, his work aims to open consciousness and to propose sensible, poetic and genuine artistic propositions.
