Personne Danse | Charles-Alexis Desgagnés

Personne Danse (PD), a contemporary dance company founded by self-taught artist Charles-Alexis Desgagnés in 2022, is headquartered in Montreal. The organization's mission is to create and produce choreographic works that contribute to the democratization of contemporary dance as a socio-political art, at the equilateral intersection of somatic intelligence, emotional affect, and physical engagement. The current choreographic approach of the artistic director can be described as animalistic, vulnerable, and virtuosic, constantly navigating between fluid aquatic movements and volcanic intensity.

The non-profit organization is dedicated to celebrating atypical dance careers, highlighting performers-choreographers and representing the stories and bodies of people from sexual diversity and queer communities. The company wishes to express the choreographic language in different forms, including scenic, in situ, cinematographic and through cultural mediation.
