Hélène Langevin

In a career spanning nearly 30 years, choreographer Hélène Langevin has become known for imaginative, theatrical, boisterously energetic works marked by playfulness and authenticity. After completing her studies in contemporary dance at the Université du Québec à Montréal (1983–87), she cofounded the dance collective Brouhaha Danse. In 1996 she created her first work for children, Roche, papier, ciseaux (“rock, paper, scissors”), and since then she has choreographed exclusively for young audiences. Bouge de là, the company she founded in 2000, became the vehicle for all her subsequent projects, from La tribu Hurluberlu (2000) to Bedtime! (2013) by way of Like the 5 Fingers on your Hand (2003), SSHH!! (2005), Old Thomas and the Little Fairy (2008) and The Studio (2010). Hélène Langevin’s dazzling interdisciplinary productions introduce children to the art of dance; in turn, her creative practice is invigorated by the ideas and teeming imaginations of her young audiences. 26 lettres à danser (The 26-Letter Dance) is the seventh original production from Bouge de là.
