Chorégraphe, Dramaturge, Interprète
Claire Pearl is a contemporary dance maker and performer based in Tiohtiá:ke/ Mooniyang/ Montreal. She is fascinated by the transformative effects of imagination and language in live performance; states of presence, detailed physical textures and perceived realities. Drawn to diverse experiences of " truth ", she finds answers in the raw, in the flesh and particularly in friction. Claire collaborates closely with the performers she works with, creating intimate and personal movement structures that reflect the co-thinking of these partnerships. She recently presented L'Absolu est absurde at VOUS ÊTES ICI (co-created with Léonie Bélanger, 2022), Archives of Youth (2022) in France, and Sink Your Teeth into the Void (2022) in Austria.
Claire is a graduate in choreography from the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD) as well as from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM) where she obtained a BFA in dance and choreography.
