S'envoler

Inspired by birds and their migrations, the Québec-based choreographer Estelle Clareton translates the movement of life through S'envoler, a work dominated by energy, tenderness and the joy that migration, belonging and the quest for autonomy and freedom evoke. Accompanied by a backdrop of sound composed exclusively of birdsong and created by Eric Forget, the eleven performers (dancers, actors and acrobats) dream of taking flight, torn by fear and stirred by desire. Packed tightly together, each pulls themselves along, desperately seeking the coordination and harmony of the movements needed for their wings to first beat. Alone or in a group, they attempt to face this new challenge, confront the fear of the unknown and dangers that are more or less real. Subtly, they challenge us with the courage and strength required for change and transformation. A metaphor for the conquest of autonomy and freedom.

Clareton, Estelle

Estelle Clareton has danced for the Ballets Jazz de Montréal, Danse partout, O Vertigo, Flak company and the Jean-Pierre Perrault Foundation. In 1999 she founded her own company, Créations Estelle Clareton. Nine choreographies mark the journey of this company, including Juliette, C'est à 30 ans que quoi déjà ? with Manon Brunelle, the triptych Monsieur, Messieurs, Dame and Trois territoires quotidiens, choreographed with Catherine La Frenière and Harold Rhéaume.
In 2000, she began a close artistic relationship with the Montréal Danse team. Working with Kathy Casey and the company's dancers, she created a duo entitled Je ne m'en souviens pas très bien and, in 2002, a group piece called De Julia à Émile, 1949. In 2005, still with the Montréal Danse team, Estelle choreographed FURIES, Alpha 1/24, the first study in a series of 24. S'envoler was Estelle's fifth instalment of FURIES. Since 2007, she has moved closer to the world of the circus, becoming artistic adviser to the École Nationale de Cirque (National circus school). In 2007 she choreographed La Disparition (a year's end show presented at the TOHU in Montréal) and, in 2009, En Plein corps (a creative workshop with six performers presented in France and Québec). As a choreographer she has participated in numerous dance, theatre, film, music and circus projects.           
She has also continued her career as a dance and theatre performer. In February 2004 she performed in l'Asile de la pureté by Claude Gauvreau, directed by Lorraine Pintal at the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde. Between 2006 and 2010 she played the role of Marie-Christine in the televised series Les hauts et les bas de Sophie Paquin, created by Claude Desrosiers for Radio Canada. She also played Martine in Les Femmes savantes, directed by Denis Marleau, which was shown at the Château de Grignan in France as well as the TNM and on tour in Québec in 2012.
