Aside to an exciting and diverse career as a performer for dance companies such as Marie Chouinard, Dominique Porte, Peter James, Sylvain Émard Danse, Fortier Danse-Création, and Daniel Léveillé, Manuel Roque is also choreographer. After creating short forms, Brendon et Brenda (2002) and Ô mon bateau (2004), he signed the solo RAW-me (2010) and the duet Ne meurs pas tout de suite, on nous regarde with Lucie Vigneault (2012), crossbreeding dance and theater. In 2013, he founded the company Manuel Roque and presented in January 2014 the project In Situ at the Place des Arts’ square in Montréal. His new creation, the solo Data, to be presented at Usine C during the fall of 2014, questions the mater mutation through a formal and hyper physical performance, and has benefited from a residency in Bassano del Grappa (Centro per la Scena Contemporanea), in Italy. Manu is also choreographer in the field of contemporary circus (Babel, presented at the festival Montréal Complètement Cirque in 2012, 2013 and 2014) and teaches interpretation/creation workshops at the École de danse contemporaine of Montréal. His creative universe focuses on the contemporary languages breeding, on the meeting of a kinesthesic virtuosity and the research of an upstanding presence.
