A Montreal freelance contemporary dance artist since 2004, Alexandre Parenteau hones his dance skills through collaborations with other artists as he pursues his interest in movement and dramaturgy. A technician of the body and its expressive possibilities, he works with choreographers such as Marie-Julie Asselin, Lina Cruz, Harold Rhéaume and Sarah Bild. Fascinated by encounters between dance and theatre, he has explored blending the two art forms in works by Deborah Dunn, Hélène Langevin and Estelle Clareton.
Keen to promote and democratize contemporary dance, Alexandre has plunged into dance for young audiences with the company Bouge de là. He has also performed in many in situ projects by Karine Ledoyen, Harold Rhéaume, Emmanuel Jouthe and Sylvain Émard. On the international scene, he has been a striking presence in choreography by Jean-Pierre Perreault, Estelle Clareton and Benoît Lachambre.
