Audray Julien is attracted to a multidisciplinary arts practice very quickly. The study of music, literature and movement through artistic gymnastics and dance became indispensable from a very early age. Feeling her passion for dance taking shape, she completes the pre-university program at Cégep de Drummondville in 2012 and then at L’École de danse contemporaine de Montréal in 2015. It is within this establishment that she will have the chance to approach the work of many choreographers, including Mélanie Demers, O Vertigo, Lina Cruz, the French collective (LA) Horde, Frédérick Gravel and Caroline Laurin-Beaucage/Martin Messier. Since her graduation, she has worked with the Castel_Blast collective, the company Parts+Labour Danse, the company 14 Lieux/ Martin Messier, and PPS Danse, among others. Audray wishes to invest herself in projects that exude both poetic and physical power.
Nicolas Boivin hails from the Saguenay region of Quebec. Dance came into his life at the age of 12. After practising several urban styles, Nicolas became interested in ballet and contemporary dance. In 2017, he completed his training at the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, which he calls the school of life. Throughout his career, he has danced in the repertoires and creations of a number of choreographers, including Angélique Willkie, Darryl Tracy, Hélène Blackburn, Édouard Lock, Marie Chouinard, José Navas, Marc Boivin, Parts+Labour_Danse and Jason Martin. In his work, Nicolas shows generosity and authenticity, allowing him to abandon himself completely to the new material. His positive attitude and thirst for learning and self-improvement drive him on. Nicolas is also a member of Corpus Collective, a Montreal dance collective with which he has taken part in numerous projects, including dance videos and the TV programme Révolution. Since his professional debut, he has worked with PPS Danse, notably for L’École Buissonnière, Attractions and, more recently, Le Trésor. For Nicolas, dance is all about sharing and passing on knowledge. That’s why he’s studying for a Master’s degree in Arts Education, with the aim of one day being able to pass on his know-how.
