A self-taught dance artist, Georges-Nicolas Tremblay studied visual arts and theatre. He is the author of over a dozen original dance works and has choreographed operettas, musicals and music videos. In his current practice, influenced by his personal investigation of queerness, he is interested in integrating text and song into dance, thus finding new ways to deepen his passion for musicals; and in studying and exploring collaborative processes as a way to de-hierarchize and queer art practices. He developed these interests while completing his master’s degree in dance at UQAM, where he researched dance dramaturgy from a relational angle, re-evaluating power dynamics within the creative process and their potential impacts on the resulting work.
In a performance career spanning over 20 years, he has danced for such acclaimed choreographers as Sylvain Émard, Isabelle Van Grimde, Harold Rhéaume, Hélène Blackburn and Hélène Langevin. He is currently associated with the company Je suis Julio (with Ariane Boulet, Nate Yaffe and Dorian Nuskind Oder) and is the co-artistic director of Corpuscule Danse. Alongside his stage career, he is a dance mediator (Festival TransAmériques, City of Montréal) and teaches his vision of dance dramaturgy, in addition to being an artistic advisor and dramaturg for other choreographers.
