Nos Saisons prend pour point de départ l’imaginaire de la nature et les paysages qui nous habitent afin de créer des chorégraphies percutantes et épurées.
Nos Saisons takes as its starting point the imaginary world of nature and the landscapes that inhabit us, to create striking, uncluttered choreographies.
Attractions, co-produced with the Sacré Tympan company, features two dancers and two musicians.

Immersed in music since early school, JP Loignon is above all fascinated by timbres and rhythms. His fascination with the texture of sounds quickly led him to acquire synthesizers and digital audio software to create his own sound worlds more freely. His academic path led him to the University of Montreal where he studied jazz singing and electroacoustics. This fusion led him to develop a vocal language with an electronic flavor.
A multi-faceted performer and passionate teacher, his artistic approach propels him further into the exploration of the relationship between the human and technology, the vibrating body and the magnifying machine. He evolves by developing his instrument and his sound universe in which the electro and the voice are the extension of each other.
As a moving chorister in several projects of theater, music and dance, he shines his magnetic joy in the gospel choir of Y’a du monde à messe and in the big family of Belle et Bum. He approaches the stage each time with curiosity and generosity.

Perles proposes a non-linear narrative through time, words and music that mark our society. This journey invites dance and music to meet in different places, to make some pearls of the Quebec song repertoire resonate, from the 1960s to today.

Pierre-Paul Savoie’s career has been marked by several awards highlighting, among other things, the fervor with which he has traveled for more than 30 years in Québec’s venues and his constant efforts to make contemporary dance known to as many people as possible: Jacqueline-Lemieux Price from the Canada Council for the Arts (1995), the Special Jury Prize of the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival (2002) for Strata, mémoires d’un amoureux, the Attitude Award presented by ROSEQ (2004) (Show Organizers Network of Eastern Quebec), the RIDEAU Tribute Award (2008) (Independent Network of Broadcasters) united artistic events), the RIDEAU Tournée Award (2014) and the Cultural Action Award of the City of Montreal (Prix de l’action culturelle de la Ville de Montréal)(2015).
The treasure is developed around a meeting between dance, the repertoire of Quebec children’s songs, theater and youth illustration.
