A maverick creator who studied music at the Paris Conservatory and dance at the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, Clara Furey is fascinated by the blending of forms, languages and codes that make up a living work. Ever since 2011, she has dedicated herself to choreographic creation and the performing arts.
She started her career as a performer for several choreographers, including George Stamos, Damien Jalet and Benoît Lachambre, who whad an important impact on her artistic process. The latter brought her to consider dance in all forms of movement, all breath, and all action of the body. Over the last few years, Clara Furey has been developing a process to materialize abstract emotions. As well, she has been developing works that are based on the hyper-awakening of sense perception.
Her process is profoundly trans-disciplinary, approaching choreographic creation as a crossroads between dance, music and performance. In 2011, she co-creates with the actress, Céline Bonnier, Hello… How Are You?. In 2012, she collaborated with Benoît Lachambre as a performer and musical director in the work Chutes Incandescentes; followed by Ciguë, co-created in 2014 with the French choreographer, Eric Arnal Burtshy, and Night Will Come, co-created with Michikazu Matsune at the Ethnological Museum of Vienna. Then in 2015, came Untied Tales (The vanished power of the usual reign) co-created with Peter Jasko.
In 2016, Clara Furey took on the challenge of artistic direction and group choreographic creation with the project Cosmic Love. Furthermore, Montreal’s Museum of Contemporary Art invited her to create a cycle of 90 solo performances titled When Even The in the context of a large-scale exhibition, which is a tribute to Leonard Cohen: A Crack In Everything.
