Originally from France, his solo performances have been presented in Canada and in Europe. Philippe will accompany renowned Quebec singer-songwriter Gilles Vigneault, now 87 years of age, on his 2017 tour.
Toronto audiences have been fortunate to see several of Lina and Philippe’s works, including Soupe du Jour (2011) which received the 2012 Dora Mavor Moore Awards for Outstanding Choreography by Lina and for Outstanding Sound Design/Composition by Philippe. Last month, Danceworks presented Lina and Philippe’s breath-taking commission for Throwdown Collective, Ylem (3 Eggs Ago) at Harbourfront Centre Theatre.
