In December 2008, Lynda Gaudreau / Compagnie De Brune took up residency in an old textiles building in the Alexandra-Marconi neighbourhood, currently known as the architects neighbourhood. The company rents a space in a building that has come to be populated with sound and visual artists.
The company baptised the studio with a flemmish-inspired name, De Studio, in honour of Flanders, where Lynda Gaudreau developed most of her projects. The companys goal in regard to De Studio is twofold: use the space to work on its own creations and open it up to other artists to share research questions and to support their practices. An interdisciplinary approach is at the heart of De Studios creative endeavours.
Objectives for De Studio:
- contribute to the advancement of choreographic and interdisciplinary contemporary creation;
- build a long-term network of artists and researchers working in dance and visual art;
- share cutting edge research and artistic practices with audiences;
- encourage audacity and new working models for contemporary artistic creation and production.
