Amélie Rajotte draws from her body archives and those of her collaborators, from which she extracts words, images, and situations to elaborate her choreographic language. Ordinary life, visual arts and cinema are important additional sources of inspiration. Above all she is fascinated by the plasticity of the body and persona. Through questioning these phenomena, she leads the audience through surreal and absurd worlds.
Amélie Rajotte holds a degree in contemporary dance from the Conservatoire National de Grenoble, and a Diplôme d’État (State qualification) in contemporary dance pedagogy from the Cefedem de Normandie. As a part of her training in France, she has worked with artists such as Dominique Boivin, Bruno Meyssat, Quatuor Albrecht Knust, Sylvain Groud, and Mié Coquempot. Her own body of choreographic work includes In Fact, I’m Gross (2009), Tenir debout (2009), The Squirrel and the Mirror (2011), Carnaval (2014), and Bernard Remix (2015). Since 2010, she has worked as a performer with PPS Danse, Lynda Gaudreau, Jessica Serli, Brice Noeser, Lara Kramer, Andrée Martin, and Karina Iraola. She is a co-founder and artistic member of LORGANISME. She recently completed a Master in contemporary dance at Université du Québec à Montreal.
