Artistic Director and Choreographer
Before dedicating himself entirely to his choreographic approach, Emmanuel Jouthe began his career as a dancer where he developed his bodily sensitivity and his desire to share his lived experiences with others. Emmanuel became the artistic director of the company in 1999, and since then has expanded its repertoire with a number of pieces and cultural mediation projects. In these projects, he allows himself to explore the range of scenic territories and different ways of bringing spectators and dance closer. He is now one of Quebec’s renowned choreographic artists. In his prolific artistic approach, he is always in search of new challenges and does not hesitate to initiate new collaborations with emerging artists who inspire him to broaden the field of possibilities.
Emmanuel Jouthe is the choreographer and the artistic director of the company Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe.
For 20 years now, he has produced more than fifteen pieces that feed his repertoire. In search of a sincere close relationship between the spectator and dance, he encourages exploration and creation by questioning the body and movement through scenic territories and diverse artistic relations as well as through concepts such as the Other, Beauty and Authenticity.
In addition to ÉCOUTE POUR VOIR, a flagship project created in 2008, its repertoire includes STACCATO RIVIÈRE (2007) and WHEN WE WERE OLD (2013), trio and duo in which he has danced, as well as CINQ HUMEURS (2010) and SUITES PERMÉABLES (2017), group pieces.
After creating the duo RIGEL & BETELGEUSE in 2018, addressed for the outdoor public, he explores new avenues with a creation for 4 performers in orbit around the self and the notion of myth.
