1 May 2018 Jeanne Renaud, Compagne des arts et des lettres du Québec
Dancer, choreographer, teacher and artistic director, Jeanne Renaud is one of Québec’s modern dance pioneers. Fond of setting up provocative and stimulating encounters between major creators, she maintains close ties with the Automatistes, rejecting narrative structures while devoting herself to all forms of experimentation and bringing together elements of music, visual arts, poetry and avant-garde theatre, as well as dance.

She co-founded Montréal’s École moderne de danse with Françoise Riopelle and also founded Le Groupe de la Place Royale.

Jeanne Renaud was appointed to the Ordre des arts et des lettres du Québec at a special awards ceremony held on May 28, 2018.

The Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec would like to thank the Caisse de la Culture and Le Devoir, which partnered for the award of this honour.
