Camille Gendron

Last updated: May 24, 2024

Camille Gendron is a contemporary dance artist based in Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang/Montreal. During their time at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM), they acquired a rich interpretive and creative experience working with Caroline Laurin-Beaucage, Alan Lake, Danièle Desnoyers, Anne Thériault, James Viveiros, Kelly Keenan and Melina Pires.

Amazed by the perceptive capacity of the human body, Camille enjoys diving into sensations to turn them into a fertile playground to redefine our relationship with ourselves, others and the land. They nourish a fluid movement imbued with density, driven by the search for gateways to self-transcendence and interrelation with the environment.

Having begun their career in History, Anthropology and Native Studies before choosing movement as a career path, Camille now nourishes their practice with socio-political reflections and a desire for honest and challenging human connections. These values are embodied in their choreographic practice, leading to the multidisciplinary co-creations [re]prendre Terre (2021) and Aux effluves de fluides et de cierges (2022).
