Guiding light and anchor
Lorganisme reinforces the activity of choreographers, bringing them together and encouraging them to deepen their respective artistic approaches through the benefits of sharing their creative, human, and material resources. By its strong structuring effect, Lorganisme is both a guiding light and an anchor for its artist members, boosting both the resonance and the sustainability of their work.
Lorganisme is propelled by a structure supported by a general management and composed of several artist members who each maintain their individual artistic identity. Lorganisme is an innovative model founded on the strength that lies in the group. Its artist members vigorously affirm the values of sharing, reflection and dialogue as elements that optimize and sustain artists’ actions in their milieus.
Lorganisme was created in 2010 by Caroline Laurin-Beaucage, Catherine Gaudet, Anne Thériault, Amélie Rajotte, and Sara Hanley. Launching platform for some, home for others but anchor for all, always, Lorganisme is still inhabited by 3 of its founding members and added two new associate members to the list of its supported artists. Together, all artist members of Lorganisme have carried out numerous research and creation endeavours and have given more than 200 performances of their works in Quebec, the rest of Canada, and abroad.
Attesting to the innovative character of its model, in 2015, Lorganisme was awarded the Prix de la Relève by the Caisse de la Culture and the Conseil des arts de Montréal.
Lorganisme provides its artist members with shared resources in the areas of administration, production, communications, and development, as well as a space for artistic reflection and exchange. In a spirit of openness and in the interest of sharing with the artistic community, the artist members of Lorganisme give a multidisciplinary workshop every summer.
