Laureate 2020

Work presented in Montreal in 2019-2020: Intérieurs, Cinquième salle, Place des Arts, Danse Danse, December 2019

The members of the jury gathered by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec were captivated by Intérieurs by Caroline Laurin-Beaucage. Successfully combining choreography, soundtrack and video projections, the show invites us on a fascinating inner journey. Like a danced diary of sublime and poetic moments, the work unfolds with a great feminine and personal sensitivity.


Choreographer, performer and teacher for 20 years, Caroline Laurin-Beaucage has worked with Ginette Laurin (O Vertigo), Jacques Poulin-Denis, Paul-André Fortier and Jean-Pierre Perreault. 

Her artistic approach encompasses varying stylistic approaches – choreographic creations, installations and videos. Her repertoire includes about ten works that have been presented in Montreal (Danse Danse, Agora de la danse, Tangente, FTA, OFFTA), as well as in France, Spain, Hungary, Germany and South Korea. 

In 2016, she created Habiter sa mémoire, an outdoor performance that was presented in about twenty places around the world. From this major project emerged in 2019 the scenic creation Intérieur and the exhibition Marquer le temps, presented by Danse Danse and Place des Arts.

Caroline Laurin-Beaucage graduated from the School of the Toronto Dance Theater. She has been teaching at Montreal’s Concordia University since 2005, and as a guest teacher at the Dance Department of UQAM in 2020-2021. 

She co-founded the structure for choreographers Lorganisme and was its Artistic Director until 2020. She was also a member of the artistic committee overseeing the development of Montreal’s Centre de création O Vertigo (CCOV).
