In April 2013, along with my colleague and fellow choreographer and improvisor, Sarah Bild, I opened a new studio space in the heart of Montreal’s Mile End neighbourhood. La Poêle is a meeting space for research and creation – rehearsal and informal presentation studio – dance and related arts workshops.
One of the many ongoing activities at La Poêle is an intimate and informal music series curated by myself and trumpet player & composer Craig Pedersen called Musique à La Poêle. The series features solo artists and small ensembles playing acoustic and often improvised music. Simply put, the programming represents things that Craig and I would like to hear.
