Isabelle Kirouac

Isabelle Kirouac is an award-winning interdisciplinary choreographer, dance artist, acrobatic stilt walker and movement educator. She holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Simon Fraser University, and presented her artistic work across Canada, the USA, Mexico and Europe. Isabelle has been teaching to people of all ages since 2004, often leading to the creation of performance work in collaboration with the students. Isabelle shares her artistic practice in an innovative, stimulating and non-competitive environment. As a movement educator, her approach is inspired by dance improvisation, contemporary dance, partnering techniques (Contact Improvisation), acrobatics, physical theater, site-specific installation, somatic practices, stilt-walking and voice work. She has also created outdoor projects inspired by nature and interspecies relationships, in particular birds and fungi. She offers students the opportunity to move together, create artistic material that respects their interests and their bodies, and develop new technical skills through play. Isabelle taught youth through the Dance Center, Vancouver International Children's Festival, Still Moon Arts Society, Association Franco-Yukonnaise, etc.
