A graduate of the Université du Québec à Montréal, Emmanuel Jouthe co-founded the company Danse Carpe Diem and distinguished himself as a choreographer/performer. After four years of artistic co-direction by six choreographers and dancers, Emmanuel Jouthe became the sole artistic director of Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe in 1999. His unique choreographic vocabulary, combining lively energy and dramatic intensity, is quickly noticed by national and international producers. He then began numerous collaborations and, over the past ten years, has produced more than fifteen pieces that have been added to his repertoire. Constantly in turmoil and in search of new challenges, he does not hesitate to work on projects in relation to other choreographers and artists while seeking new ways to explore other scenic territories (in situ) and close relationships between the spectator and dance such as Écoute pour voir (2008), Suites perméables (2015) and Chairs miniatures (2015).
