DOCUMENTING AND TRANSMITTING QUEBEC'S CONTEMPORARY DANCE HERITAGE / FONDATION JEAN-PIERRE PERREAULT

EC2_Espaces chorégraphiques 2

The digital platform EC2_Espaces chorégraphiques 2 is an exciting new initiative by the Fondation Jean-Pierre Perreault (FJPP).

EC2 explores different traces and memories of dance. It invites visitors to recreate and re-enact, to reflect and discuss. It showcases the multiple ways in which contemporary dance in Quebec is documented and transmitted from one generation to the next.

EC2_Espaces chorégraphiques 2 also pays tribute to the visionary Jean-Pierre Perreault, the first choreographer in Quebec to found a space for dance creation: Espace chorégraphique.

EC2 is:

  • A (small) virtual museum of contemporary dance in Quebec
  • A unique digital collection of choreographic toolkits
  • A media library to experience dance close up
  • A forum for discussion about issues related to our contemporary dance heritage
  • A place to document, transmit, share and discover

 

Designed as a dance memory lab and forum for research and reflection, EC2 invites visitors to play an active role in our dance heritage.
