The relational, experiential, and experimental potential of dance inspires me. I dance, choreograph, write, translate, and teach. I am the mother of Imogen Keith whose presence is a force coursing through me. I create work, including the recent video installation Mères et mouvements d’enfants presented in 2022 at the Foreman Gallery in partnership with Sursaut and the Centennial Theatre in Sherbrooke, with curator and artist Camila Vásquez. I work with artists whom I love, recently Louise Bédard, Katie Ward and PME-ART. I was a dancer in residence at l’Agora de la danse from 2017 to 2019. In 2016, my friend Sophie Bélair Clément and I created the exhibition project and bilingual publication – I’d rather something ambiguous. Mais précis à la fois. at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery. From 2004 to 2008, I danced at the now-defunct Le Groupe Dance Lab in Ottawa, training daily with Peter Boneham.
