About the Residency Project

During the Bouge d'ici x Art Volt residency, Marie-Victoria Laurence developed material for a piece entitled “I AM THE CAT LADY”, a dancing duet in homage to her two 16 year-old cats. In collaboration with dancers Diego Cervantes, Marie-Laurence Deschênes, and musician Pierre-Olivier Bolduc, a movement story inspired by the strong bonds between cats and their human counterparts was explored. Costume designer Adrienne Gantenberg also joined to begin playing and experimenting with fabrics.
