A choreographer, performer and teacher for 20 years, Caroline Laurin-Beaucage worked alongside Ginette Laurin (O Vertigo), Jacques Poulin-Denis, Paul-André Fortier and Jean-Pierre Perreault. Her repertoire, including almost a dozen creations, have toured in Montreal (Danse Danse, Agora de la danse, Tangente, FTA, OFFTA), as well as in Canada, France, Spain, Hungary, Germany and South Korea. In 2016, she created Habiter sa mémoire [Inhabiting Memory], an outdoor performance presented in more than twenty locations around the world. From this major project emerged in 2019 the solo Intérieurs (CALQ award for Best Choreographic Work 2019-20) and the exhibition Marquer le temps, presented by Danse Danse and Place des Arts. Her creations GROUND and REBO(U)ND, produced by Montréal Danse with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts New Chapter program, have been touring since 2018.

She has been teaching at Montreal’s Concordia University since 2005 and as a guest teacher at the Dance Department of UQAM in 2020-2021. She co-founded the structure for choreographers Lorganisme and acted as its Artistic Director until 2020. She was also a member of the artistic committee overseeing the development of Montreal’s Centre de création O Vertigo.
