Bio: 

We are a company of dream makers, where movement, dance and image weaves stories that provoke us.

We bring powerful choreography and continually pursue artistic excellence on stage and off, in workshops and classes, in venues small and large, exploring the play between contemporary dance, first nations dances, theater, ballet and hip hop.

 

A NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED, CREATION-BASED DANCE COMPANY, THAT IS AN TRAILBLAZER AND RESOURCE IN THE CREATION, PRODUCTION AND EDUCATION OF CONTEMPORARY DANCE IN CANADA.

Visceral and fearless, The Chimera Project (Chimera) is a contemporary dance company recognized for its extreme physical creations and tapping into dark, urban, gritty themes.  Chimera thrives on investigating intersections between kinetic inspirations, spaces, genres, and cultures. Our vision is to empower artistic excellence and to cultivate authentic connections between individuals and worlds that surround us. We foster personal growth and a sense of connection within and beyond the walls of the studio, theatre, school, and community.

The company has three areas of activity:

CREATION
Development and investigation of contemporary dance.

PRODUCTION
Productions in live venues and on film;
Collaborations with exceptional dance artists, composers, filmmakers, producers and administrators.

EDUCATION & OUTREACH
Workshops and classes for a broad range of ages and experiences, engagement opportunities for audiences and communities throughout the year;
Lab: Projects that support the artistic dance community through knowledge sharing, performance, presentation and creation opportunities.
