La Compagnie de Dance
La Compagnie de Danse is a local francophone movement company. Through this company, artistic director, Cynthia Nakeyar, aims to create a safe space for her members to move, explore, collaborate, create and perform. Their most recent work was presented at the TAP Centre for Creativity, where they spent four days creating a one-hour movement piece that was performed to francophone music. This work was featured in the local francophone newspaper, l’Action, as well as on Radio-Canada.
La Compagnie practices a variety of movement styles (ranging from improvisation to styles such as contemporary, urban-contemporary, jazz, hip hop and heels). They love to create according to their environment as well as their personal yet relateable experiences which often leads to a merging of these styles.
Members of la Compagnie de Danse share an incredible passion for dance, community, experience and art, and are honoured to represent the francophone community within London’s artistic family.
