28 May 2019 Paul-André Fortier, Compagnon des arts et des lettres du Québec
Dancer, choreographer, and educator, Paul-André Fortier has made an outstanding contribution to the development and influence of Québec contemporary dance. His research, rigour, and penchant for risk paved the way for dance freed from past forms. He has created some 50 bold choreographies, often drawing on other artistic disciplines and new technology. His creative approach always goes hand in hand with a strong commitment to the dance community.

Paul-André Fortier has received the title of Compagnon des arts et des lettres du Québec on May 27, 2019.

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.
