After obtaining her Bachelor's degree in Dance / Creation from UQÀM, Virginie Brunelle is quickly perceived as one of the choreographers of the new generation to watch. In 2009, she founded her eponymous company and has since created 6 works: Les cuisses à l’écart du coeur (2009), Foutrement (2010), Complexe des genres (2011), PLOMB (2013/2017), To the pain that Iingers (2016), Beating (2018 - Gauthier Theaterhouse Dance Company Stuttgart). In just a few years, the company has received awards and honors, found co-producers and presented its works in more than fifty theaters in a dozen cities in Canada, Europe, Mexico and South Korea. Through dance, Virginie wants the audience to be touched and make connections with their own emotional experiences. She sees her works as a visual melody that brings together, through poetic staging of our common daily battles. The most important to her, and above all, is to bring out through images much humanity and trueness.
