Companies / Destins Croisés

Company Presentation

The philosophy of the company resides in its name, “Destins Croisés” - crossed fates in French. Founded in 2003 by French-Moroccan-Canadian choreographer, dancer and teacher Ismaël Mouaraki, DC is a Montreal-based dance company that brings together urban and contemporary dances to create original and unique choreographic pieces. Identity and alterity are recurrent themes and motifs in Ismaël Mouaraki’s pieces, exploring the mixing of genres, individualities and hybrid physicalities to reach the essence of the danced body and transcend all social, cultural and artistic boundaries to create with what separates. In Ismaël Mouaraki's world, there is a place for everyone, every art form, every approach.
