During the workshop you will be confronted with Eastman’s dance vocabulary and have the chance to explore a variety of different styles and techniques, that influence Cherkaoui’s dance language.
Our aim on this workshop is to bring the performers/dancers in touch with some of the tasks from which Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui makes his pieces
The workshop will be focusing on the bodies individually in order to produce a very specific fashion of movement where principle elements of the body are in major priority such as gravity fluency flexibility extension folding unfolding and most of all the transfer of body in space and its levels.

Louise Michel Jackson works regularly with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui/Eastman on pieces such as Puz/zle and the Anna Karenina film for which Cherkaoui did the choreography. Louise received her initial training at the École Supérieure de Danse du Québec, in her native Canada, graduating in 1999 before continuing with the Jeune Ballet du Quebec until 2002. She danced with Cas Public / Hélène Blackburn for four years. She presented her first co-choreographed work with Hanako Hoshimi-Caines, Little Bang Theory, involving Lhasa De Sela and Plants and Animals musicians at Pop Montreal in 2007, and again at Suoni del Popolo and OFF.T.A. in 2009. In 2008, she joined Rubberbandance Group/Victor Quijada, contributing to the development and touring of repertoire for three years. In 2010 she has worked as a freelance artist with Jacques Poulin-Denis, Sasha Kleinplatz, Milan Gervais, Laurel Koop and Sylvain Poirier, and participated in a laboratory with director Patrice Dubois and choreographer Caroline Laurin-Beaucage. In 2011, she performed in Montreal her first own solo Storm as a tribute to Lhasa de Sela, supervised by Pierre-Paul Savoie, and did a short dance movie Vive les Canadiennes directed by Joe Cobden.
