Company Presentation

A multidisciplinary artist, Mélanie Demers founded in 2007 her dance company MAYDAY, where she explores the strong connections between poetics and politics. Les Angles Morts (2006), Sense of Self (2008), Junkyard/Paradis (2010), Goodbye (2012) and MAYDAY remix (2014) have all been created from this perspective. Lately, WOULD (2015) won the CALQ Prize for best choreography of the 2014-2015 season. In 2016, Mélanie Demers began a new creative cycle with Animal Triste and Icône Pop; both works are touring internationally. With Danse Mutante (2019), she elaborates a choreographic project unfolding on three continents, in which a duo destined for multiple mutations passes through the hands of four female choreographers. To date, Mélanie Demers choreographed twenty works and was presented in some thirty cities across Europe, America, Africa and Asia.
