The virtual exhibition Jean-Pierre Perreault, Choreographer features an educational discovery guide created for high school students and teachers by Nicole Turcotte, Visiting Professor at UQAM’s Dance Department. A series of new dance appreciation and movement creation activities have been added to the guide to deepen students’ understanding of Perreault’s world. These activities meet the requirements of Quebec’s dance training program (MELS).
Innovative performance activities explore themes close to Perreault’s heart, including body weight, gravity and authentic movement.
Studio activities help students sharpen their senses, build trust and self-confidence, and use Perreault’s artwork to imagine new forms of dance.
Near about twenty activities have been added to this unique space for the transmission of dance. Happy exploring!
**NOTE: An English version of these new activities will be available in the spring.
