Originally from the small island of New Caledonia, Charles Brecard began to take an interest in dance at the age of 15, beginning with the so-called “street dance”. Wishing to expand his artistic vocabulary, he juggles several styles: Krump, Bboying, Popping, Locking, Hip-Hop and traditional Kanak dance to finally learn contemporary dance. Self-taught, he worked for two years with several dance companies in the country with whom he trained as a professional performer, learning the reality of the job.
Arrived in Quebec (Canada) in 2013, first to study massage therapy, her passion led her to continue to train at the School of Contemporary Dance of Montreal.
He collaborates with several established and emerging choreographers such as Hélène Blackburn, Parts + Labour_Danse, Alan Lake, Sam Coren, Jason Martin and Marie Chouinard.
He works with the companies Code Universel, DansEncorps and Fates Crusaders in their new creations and continues his apprenticeship with professors of international renown. Recently, he is interested in choreography and will present his first solo “(No) Surrender” in Stuttgart (Germany), created in collaboration with the composer John-Lucas Williamson. His cultural background allows him to have a certain versatility in his approach to dance from both a kinesthetic and reflective point of view.
