Compagnie Virginie Brunelle was founded in Montreal in 2009. From the start, Virginie Brunelle has acted as its Artistic and Executive Director. The company’s repertoire now includes five works: Les cuisses à l’écart du cœur (2009), Foutrement (2010), Complexe des genres (2011), PLOMB (2013/2017), À la douleur que j’ai (2016). These productions have been presented on local, national and international stages, in 10 countries and in over 50 cities.
With authenticity and human emotion, as well as through her themes and choice of performers, Virginie wishes to establish an intimate connection with her audience, stirring them with singular and powerful pieces.Her work can be recognized in the sensitive but raw performances, the cinematic tableaux and a vocabulary that seeks to deconstruct traditional codes, using staccato rhythms and coarse movement, constantly alternating between tension and release. Above all, Virginie is interested in humans, their emotions, and the poetry of everyday existence.
