Prix Étincelle

Created in 2022 in honour of dancer, choreographer and artistic director Pierre-Paul Savoie (1955-2021), this award recognizes Quebec-based artists and cultural workers (individuals, collectives or organizations) who inspire exceptional encounters around a dance project, be it a cultural mediation project for youth or the general public, an activity revolving around a show, or an initiative that promotes an engagement with the discipline. Projects must hold significant potential, create a spark, or build bridges between artists and audiences with the goal of making dance accessible to everyone. The award includes a cash prize of $5,000 and a 50-hour residency at the Espace de création Pierre-Paul Savoie.
