alan lake factori(e) lab

During this workshop, Alan Lake Factori(e) will share the basics of the company’s creative process. This laboratory invites the students to experiment creative systems where fantasy and reality superimpose, giving birth to a dance at times strange, yet universal. Students will get acquainted with the company’s choreographic language, taping in their physical memory and raw energy to create their own path. Working in solo or duet, then in small and large groups, they
will explore and appropriate movement practices where the body is open both to its own inner climate, and to its environment. The final stages will be devoted to sketching a choreographic draft. 

The session includes

  • Free access to all the Academy classes and activities for the entire session. 
  • Free access to le Domaine Forget International Festival concerts during the session (Restrictions may apply for certain concerts) 
  • Student evening activities (bonfire, sports activities, tourist outings, movies, yoga etc.)
  • Three meals a day in the Joseph-Rouleau pavilion, which has a large terrace and marvelous view overlooking the St. Lawrence River.
  • Double or quadruple occupancy lodging. Bedding service (sheets and towels) on request: $35
