Since then, she has multiplied her collaborations with important institutions such as the Fall for Dance North Festival in Toronto, where she created the duet Counter Cantor (2018) with renowned choreographer Emma Portner, as well as Fiddle Embrace (2018), a piece for eighteen students from the Ryerson School of Dance.

From 2002 to 2015, Anne Plamondon was a performer and then co-artistic director of RUBBERBAND, where she creates with Victor Quijada the memorable duet AV/INPUT/OUTPUT as well as a dozen works for the stage.

It’s always time to jump into one another’s arms, do the wave, sway your hips to celebrate and reconnect with your essence. Distilling the unifying power of dance, Minuit quelque part is an explosion of happiness in movement.
