Sonia St-Michel Creations (SSC) is dedicated to the creation and dissemination of dance works and we engage in arts education to cultivate an appreciation for and accessibility to dance. Our creations are rooted in Sonia St-Michel's artistic practice and choreographic signature in Odissi dance and foster interdisciplinary collaborations.
Through our artistic process and intentions, there is a desire for a transformative experience, a community introspection guided by compassion, both for the audiences and for the artists involved.
Our outreach mandate is articulated through workshops and teaching activities. In a desire to awaken our humanity, SSC reaches out to communities and enters into dialogue with young people and adults to reflect together on the concepts of art, creation and culture.
In the pursuit of our mission, we collaborate with industry players in the coproduction and dissemination of events, the organization of master classes and mentoring for emerging artists.
We are thankful for the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec, the Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute, the City of Gatineau and the Académie de danse de l’Outaouais. We thank our educational partners, the Ministère de l’éducation et l’enseignement supérieur, Ministère de la culture et des communications, MASC and ELAN.
