Virginie Brunelle is going to fly to Stuttgart with Isabelle Arcand, her dancer since her beginnings in her company and choreographer assistant for this great project. Virginie has already been working on the piece she’s going to present at Gauthier Dance Company in Germany and in Montreal. Now she goes for several intense days to meet the german dancers
At the airport, Virginie and Isabelle are getting ready for a mad rhythm they will follow during those next days. The apprehension of the unknown mingles with the enthusiasm of the new and a frenzy lingers above them. The main concern for Virginie will be understanding the way of working of the ballet dancers in order to merge the best of Ballet in the Contemporary’s universe. We already interviewed David Campbell, one of her Montrealer dancers, to see how Virginie changes in advance her way of building a choreography. This will be THE moment for her to see the fulfillment of her work on the other side of the ocean.
