The international reputation of the Compagnie Marie Chouinard is the result of twenty-eight years of work by Montreal artist Marie Chouinard. Recognized as one of Canada’s leading contemporary dance companies, Compagnie Marie Chouinard is a fixture on the world’s major stages and festivals.

Using the 24 Preludes in Frédéric Chopin’s opus 28 as her source of inspiration, Marie Chouinard has choreographed 24 Preludes by Chopin. In this jubilant yet solemn work, the dance melds with the music for an energetic, stirring and resolutely contemporary whole. Playing with the very structure of these preludes written for the piano, Marie Chouinard has created a pure, lavish piece.

Marie Chouinard’s The Rite of Spring is her first choreography based on a musical score (Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring). In this avant-garde work, Marie Chouinard finds an original pulsation that is essential to her movement. The cadence and force of the music inspire, accompany and energize her, forming both the echo and the musical counterpoint of an organic, vigorous and vivid choreography.
