The Question... Anne Plamondon on Québec Danse 2014

Danse, Dance
by Estelle Rosen

Co-Artistic Director/Dancer with RubberbandDanceGroup since 2002, Anne Plamondon was involved in developing a strategic vision for the company and now teaches the RUBBERBAND Method internationally. Ms Plamondon has collaborated with Crystal Pite's company, Kidd Pivot, since 2005. More recently, she continues to pursue her own choreographic voice in the self-solo work Les memes jeux que toi which was created in collaboration with Marie Brassard and premiered in 2012 at Agora de la Danse.

CHARPO: How has the development of Regroupement québécois de la danse (RQD) contributed to making dance such a vibrant part of Montreal's arts community, as evidenced by the upcoming Québec Danse 2014.

PLAMONDON: Montreal is a cultural metropolis with a rich pool of dance artists, choreographers and performers, both professional and amateur. (cont'd)

PLAMONDON: (cont'd) Founded in 1984 with the aim of giving a unified voice for Quebec dance, the Regroupement québécois de la danse has over the years played a major role in developing the dance sector through various innovative projects, such as the Québec Danse event. 

In designing this annual happening three years ago, the RQD proposed the ambitious goal of gathering around dance professionals all those who embrace dance in Montreal, and elsewhere in Québec. I am extremely proud to be associated for the first time as a spokesperson for this inclusive and prolific dance event.
